Incline Village, NV, February 21, 2015 --(PR.com
)-- Home and Garden America, a respected non-GMO seed company based in Nevada, has been a long-time advocate for organic food gardening, seed saving, and keeping a survival seeds vault for emergency preparedness.
The company's dedication to providing premium non-GMO seeds to consumers is the reason why it has signed the Safe Seed Pledge—a special program created by the Council for Responsible Genetics (CRG) to link sellers, suppliers, distributors and traders of non-GMO seeds to the organic consumer market.
CRG first started the Safe Seed Pledge back in 1999. The main objective is to create a list of the most trusted non-GMO seed sellers in the U.S. and around the world. In order to join the Safe Seed Program, a company must complete the application form and state that it does not knowingly buy, sell or trade genetically-modified seeds and plants.
Once the application has been evaluated and approved, the said company will officially be added to CRG's Safe Seed Resource List. Organic farmers, gardeners and consumers can then refer to the resource list to locate a verified non-GMO seed seller in their area.
Home and Garden America has successfully passed the screening and is now formally recognized by the CRG as a trusted non-GMO seed seller. To date, over 100 seed businesses have signed the initiative—and the list continues to grow as more and more people favor organic seeds for their vegetable gardens and survival seeds vault collections.
To protect the world's seed supply and promote organic living, the CRG encourages consumers to only purchase seeds from companies mentioned in the Safe Seed Resource List. This way, genetically-modified seeds will eventually be eliminated and more organic foods will be produced.
Signing the Safe Seed Pledge means making a full commitment to the whole community and the environment, and Home and Garden America takes this obligation to heart. Expect the company to continue providing the best non-GMO seeds for several years to come.
