Organic Garden Seed Suppliers
Below is a list of online providers of organic garden seed and seedlings. Some companies offer both organic and conventional seed, but those companies offering conventional seed must have taken the Safe Seed Pledge to be included here. According to the Council for Responsible Genetics (CRG), the Safe Seed Pledge states that providers do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. Companies offering organic garden seed exclusively will appear in bold. This list will be updated periodically, but if you notice any errors or know of a company that belongs on this list, e-mail Green Promise at firstname.lastname@example.org. Grow responsibly!
