The How To Know If You're Buying GMO Free Seeds List

Foto: How do we know if the seeds we buy for our garden are GMO free? We check the Council for Responsible Genetics listing to make sure the seed company has taken the GMO free "Safe Seed Pledge". While the CRG does not require testing for cross contamination, some seed companies, like Baker Creek Heirloom Seed Company, do test for GMO contamination. Also be sure that you don't order "treated" seeds. Treated seeds are coated with fungicides or pesticides and should be avoided.

What's your favorite seed company? We'd like to know! Tell us what you're planting in your garden this year. Happy GMO free seed shopping :)
