How to Save Tomato Seeds:
We grow heirloom seed because:
Ten corporations control 67% of global proprietary seed.
93% of vegetable varieties carried in seed catalogs of the 1900's are now extinct, due to the consolidation of seed production in a few hands.
Terminator, or 'suicide,' seeds are programmed to be infertile in the next generation, so farmers are forced to buy their seed, instead of saving it.
Corporations use the law to intimidate farmers who save their own seed.
Seeds that were naturally selected by our ancestors for over 12,000 years, and that are part of the human commons, are now being patented by corporations.
Corporations co-opt public institutions to carry out research that supports their commercial interests, rather than the interests of the public.
By growing open-pollinated heirloom varieties and conserving their seed we serve as responsible stewards of our seed heritage.
