Open Source Seed Collection

Out of stock

Organic Open Source Seed Collection - (5 packets) As a response to the increasing privatization of seed resources, the Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) was created to “free the seed” and ensure that some seed breeding material remains in the public domain, available for all to use. Rather than using a license or patent, OSSI uses a Pledge to ask breeders and seed stewards to make their seeds available without restrictions on use, and asks that recipients make the same commitment. High Mowing has been a proud partner of OSSI in developing the framework for Open Source seed. By purchasing these seeds, you are agreeing to the OSSI Pledge:

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.

The Open Source Seed Collection includes:

The collection comes bundled in a white envelope with information about the Open Source Seed Initiative. To learn more about OSSI, visit
