You Can Now Order from the Annapolis Seeds 2013 Catalogue

05AnnSeeds5x5Annapolis Seeds in Nova Scotia began five years ago. It grows and sells natural seeds, ones not infected with Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).

From Annapolis Seeds website: Annapolis Seeds is a living seed bank for the Maritime region, our goal is to maintain, select and develop the greatest diversity of seeds possible which thrive in our climate. 100% of our seeds are grown in the Maritimes by small-scale growers committed to sustainable farming methods.

Annapolis Seeds has signed the Council for Responsible Genetics’ Safe Seed Pledge:

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 modified 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 modified varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically modified seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately healthy people and communities.

Check out what they have to offer by visiting Annapolis Seeds website. They now accept payment through PayPal.

  1. Very nice!! Especially in the light of second-generation infertility of many GM seeds. It will take generations (human generations) for those tampered crops to restabilize genetically.

    • Thanks. I agree. I don’t think the larger picture is being considered. I can’t imagine what it would be like if GMOs cross pollinate with native species and turn entire lands into Round-up Ready fields. So much has changed in the past thirty years. It’s like we’re on the highway and the speed keeps being increased. I can’t imagine what the next thirty years will bring. We will live them as if they were ninety years all rolled up into thirty.

  2. Hi Diane. In fact cross-pollination is already happening and polluting places. So more naturally bred varieties are suddenly partially sterile by wind pollination. A problem for Monsanto on the other hand are the “Roundup-ready weeds” that are coming up. Who said jumping genes don’t exist? Let’s hope such a lot of weeds get “Roundup-ready” that the whole thing collapses.
