Free organic seeds for your garden. Need I say more? This year, as part of their Sowing Millions Project, Seeds of Change is giving away 25 packets of seeds to Food Renegade readers.
What’s so special about these seeds? Glad you asked.
Second, they’re GMO-free! No weird, genetically engineered pieces of foreign DNA have been forcibly incorporated into the plants. YAY.
Third, they’re open-pollinated. That means they will produce new generations of whatever you plant. In other words, you could collect seeds from your hardiest, tastiest plants this year and plant those collected seeds next year! Open pollination is great because it increases biodiversity and helps ensure that your garden only gets healthier and stronger with each passing year as you select for plants that grow well in your soil and weather conditions. Believe it or not, most commercial seeds these days aren’t open-pollinated. They’re commercial hybrids or closed, self-pollinated plants created to ensure consistency year after year while also requiring that you buy new seeds each year.
And finally, they’re quality tested. If you’re new to the world of gardening, you may not know why that’s important. So let me paint a picture for you. Say you go to your nearest box store and pick out the $1 packets of seeds on the rack in the garden center. You get home and plant them. Out of 100 seeds, maybe half actually sprout, and of those, only a third will actually end up being viable. You got what you paid for — crappy seeds. At Seeds of Change, they’re committed to growing and creating the highest-quality organic, open-pollinated seeds on the market. They actually test, research, develop, and test some more. Their seeds are actually viable. The vast majority of them will sprout for you, and most of those sprouts will have the potential to turn into healthy, productive plants.
