Why open source seeds?

Using Open Source seeds protects farmers and gardener's access to the seeds that grow the food we eat. Most seeds today are owned and controlled by someone other than the grower. Open Source seeds keep the food supply out of the hands of large corporations and in the hands of those that grow the food. When you purchase OSSI Pledged seeds, you have the right to use them in any way you wish.

The Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) is a 501(c)3 non-profit that promotes sharing rather than restricting access to agricultural seeds, and supports a diversified and decentralized seed industry.

Open Source seeds are not free seed but "freed" seed, seeds liberated from the constraints of
intellectual property restrictions. The OSSI Pledge upholds the rights of farmers, gardeners, breeders and communities to freely use, save, replant and improve OSSI-Pledged seed. Seeds in this protected commons will remain available for all of us to use now and in the future.

We are proud to offer Open Source Pledged seed. To choose open source seeds look for the (OSSI logo). To learn more about how open source seeds protect food security, farmer's rights and seed access, look up the Open Source Seed Initiative at Free the Seed!
