How about Pinetree Garden Seeds. I can't find a safe seed pledge in their catalog, but anybody know anything?

Not sure why that is not on a list. I think it is one that sells Seminis seed, but not sure. Will go check.

It looks like they might have eliminated the Seminis seeds from thier catalog. I'm not totally positive on that. If anyone else knows please post.

Any info on these?
I'm feeling kinda lost now that I know Stokes is out!
Rupp carries semini's seeds, but unsure about the rest. Could you e-mail them and ask, then report back here to tell us if they are ok.

If that link is correct, then Johnny's should be removed from the other thread.

Thanks.
They buy seeds to sell from Seminis which is owned by Monsanto.

says on this page that they took the safe seed pledge

So far what I read here that they are a good company and not offiliated with Monsanto.

Yes, irish-eyes is a great place to buy seeds. I think Lanna buys from them.

Does anyone know anything about the seeds that Whole Foods sells? I purchased some Ferry-Morse seeds which are "organic", only to read the post from someone in this thread that they may not be linked to Monsanto, but they are doing genetic engineering. Bummer.

So I'm trying to get some seeds which are easy to come by. I was planning to start my seeds today.

So, are the Whole Foods seeds safe? Anyone know the name?

Thanks!

Call around to your local nurseries or your local co-op, someone should carry organic or heirloom seeds. Here it is Renee's Garden Seeds, Seeds of Change, plus we have an organic farm supply store up the hill from us. You should be able to find something close. Good luck!

If you do a search of this thread and the other you'll get the info you need. If you have time could you post about whether they should be on one or the other list. That would be awesome. I have to take my dad into surgery in a couple minutes and probably won't have time to post anything for a week or so. Thanks.

Isn't Nichols Nursery a safe seed pledge company? They have featured the pledge with a detailed explanation prominently in their magazine for years. http://www.nicholsgardennursery.com/

Nichol's Nursery still buys seeds to sell to the public from Semininis which is owned by Monsanto. This does not mean they buy GMO's to sell to the public, but they still fund Monsanto by buying from Semininis.

I just came across this one today as I was searching for local/Tennessee seed sources: New Hope Seeds; they state on the main page that they are a signor of the Safe Seed Pledge.

Also, is there another link to the safe companies listed by state? I tried the link in the original post and it failed.

Added New Hope Seeds to the list. Looks like a great seed company.

It looks like they took that page down. When I have time I will try to find something that might be similar to that link.

Thanks for all your hard work FarmerCathy and everyone!!
My housemate and I read the Urban Homestead book and are working on making some self-watering containers and growing veggies in our living room this winter. So I'm looking for seed companies that are good to buy from-and here's this amazing list
