Organic seeds have many benefits over non-organic seeds, one of the largest being that they have not been exposed to harmful agricultural chemicals that are often used in seed crop production. No harmful chemicals in the seeds means no chemicals in the food, so none in your bodies! Organic seeds can also produce stronger plants. This is because they are better adapted to their growing environments due to the lack of pesticides and herbicides used.
Another big benefit of using organic seeds is that they are better for the environment. Crops that are grown for their seeds have a longer life cycle than most crops, and this means that they have to live longer. Non-organic seed crops often consume a dangerous amount of pesticides and other chemicals to keep the plants alive until they seed and a lot of those chemicals end up harming the local environment and even affecting the health of the people who live there.
These are just a few reasons why you should plant organic seeds in your gardens this spring! Using organic seeds will help you to have deliciously healthy plants that do not hurt our environment. If you are looking for high quality, organic seeds for your gardens this year, check out our Seed Sale fundraiser going on now!
