South Sound Seed Stewards Mission Statement
“Knowing that in our present geopolitical state, many seed companies, which have provided the non-hybrid and open-pollinated varieties, are no longer in business and/or are producing hybrid varieties mainly for the commercial growers, South Sound Seed Stewards has organized for the purpose of:
* Encouraging community independence and self-reliance through producing and sharing locally-adapted, open-pollinated seeds.
* Providing for the home gardener an educational resource in sustainable gardening.
* Protecting and collecting the seed from our non-hybrid, open- pollinated varieties
* Creating a Seed Bank of non-hybrid, open-pollinated seeds which have been acclimated to our region.”
Safe Seed Pledge
We shall never knowingly buy, sell or distribute genetically engineered seeds or plants.”
