We are honored to grow and support some open source seeds in our catalog. Any open source seed will be marked in the catalog and on its package label.
Growing these seeds is important to support seed diversity and heritage. The open source pledged seeds carry the OSSI pledge if you decide to grow them in your garden.
If you develop any new varieties derived from an open source seed, it must also be OSSI pledged and remain open for future generations.

You have the freedom to use these OSSI-Pledged seeds in any way you choose. In return, you pledge not to restrict others’ use of these seeds or their derivatives by patents or other means, and to include this Pledge with any transfer of these seeds or their derivatives.
