Growing Organic with Renee's Garden
Our company goal
is to offer home gardeners a wide selection of the very best heirloom,
open-pollinated and hybrid seeds. We do not sell and will never sell chemically
treated or GMO seeds. We choose varieties from all over the world that grow
easily and perform well.
We have been serious organic gardeners for over 25 years, using non-toxic,
sustainable, certified organic gardening practices in our trial gardens with
great success and satisfaction. Everyone at Renee’s Garden enjoys the organic
produce grown in our gardens and it is a significant part of our diets.
At the present time, continuous supplies of reliably certified, organically
grown seeds are not available for all of the varieties we offer. We actively
follow the progress of organic seed production and look forward to increases in
our organic seed availability in the near future. Our standards for buying seeds are
very high, not only for germination and purity, but for proof of absence of
seed-borne pathogens; so we are willing to wait for the quality seeds we
Supporting organic gardening and sustainable farming is an integral part of
Renee’s Garden. We give our business to a wide range of small organic seed
growers and farmer cooperatives whenever they can provide the grade of seed we
want to supply to our customers.
We trial all our selections rigorously in our main Felton, northern CA trial
garden and in a variety of trial locations around the country including Vermont,
Washington and Florida before offering them to our customers, so you can grow
them with confidence. We have also signed the Safe Seed Pledge developed by The
Council for Responsible Genetics:
"Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must
protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations.
For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative,
we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or
plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural
reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great
biological risks as well as economic, political and cultural threats. We feel
that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to
public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the
potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support
agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse
agricultural ecosystems and, ultimately, people and communities."
