Certified Organic LogoOrganic farmers are required to use organic seeds if available, and home gardeners want to use organic seeds for three reasons:
1. the seeds grew in fields without synthetic pesticides (non-organic seed is exposed to even more pesticides because they sit in the field much longer than food crops),
2. they were grown with organic methods and respond well to conditions in an organic home garden,
3. supporting organic seed farmers gives vitality to the organic seed supply.
