Not Every Seed Is Created Non GMO

seeds catalogs Not Every Seed Is Created Non GMO

A couple of months ago I started to get my seed catalogs in the mail. Well, well…word on the street not every seed is created non GMO. According to a list compiled by Monsanto Free Seeds. One need to be careful about where they purchase their seeds for the upcoming growing season.

My favorite seed catalog is Rareseeds. The glossy catalog is a detailed magazine of resourceful information, growing tips and recipes.

Another place worthy of a honorable mention for shopping for seeds is Amazon. Oh baby….

Check out my “Sow a Seed” pinheads.

Print out the list for reference purposes.:

Here are some seed companies. Please let us know of any we missed and we will add them to this list.  Names are in alphabetical order, try to search for a company in your bioregion when possible.  Also, it never hurts to ask any company if they sell any Seminis seeds or seeds from Seminis’ partners. (Sites with asterisks* have the additional approval and endorsement by and verification by recognized leaders in the battle)

Another tool you can use to check up on a seed supplier is supplied by Monsanto’s Seminis themself:

Monsanto and Seminis heirloom seed varieties to watch out for:

First of all, Monsanto or anyone else can’t actually OWN these varieties of seed, but as developers of some of these varieties and as suppliers of them under many different companies it can be hard to tell who owns what.  It does not stand to reason that any crop of these varieties growing today or anytime in the future will be genetically modified in any way.  Some of these varieties can be found without any continuing connection to Monsanto or Seminis but it is important to be a little more cautious with these.

If you are the type of gardener who purchases vegetable seeds or seedlings, including tomato plants from a local garden center, be mindful the varieties you choose. Conversely, you might be placing money into the hands of Monsanto Corporation. Below is the list of Seminis/Monsanto home-garden vegetable variations.  It’s usually best to buy directly from seed farmers and companies that you can trust, but here’s the list just in case.
