Growing Organic with Renee's Garden
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.
Because reliable supplies of seed grown to the USDA's National Organic Program Standards are somewhat limited, our organic seeds are sourced from small USDA Certified Organic seed growers, family farms and cooperatives who meet our high standards for germination, purity and the absence of seed-borne pathogens.
Whether you plant our Certified Organic Seeds or choose from our large range of conventionally produced seed varieties, you should know that supporting sustainable farming practices is an integral part of Renee’s Garden. We do not sell chemically treated or genetically engineered seeds and have 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."
