Hometown Seeds

This is not a sponsored post or a review post because I have not received anything in return for posting and I have not yet experienced doing business with Hometown Seeds. I will receive a packet of survival seeds for sharing the link to Hometown Seeds survival seeds, and I have been offered the same 10% off purchase as offered to my readers (details below). At this time, I cannot express an opinion about this company one way or another.

However, I received an email offering myself and my readers 10% off the total cost of any order between 01/21/2010 and 02/28/2010. All you have to do is choose your items, then enter coupon code thanks upon checkout. I was encouraged to share this offer with my readers, so I am sharing.

Here are the categories they offer on the site:
Survival Seeds
Annual Flower Seeds
Perennial Flower Seeds
Garden Vegetable Seeds
Herb Seeds
Wildflower Seeds
Miscellaneous Seeds
Best Sellers

The survival seeds package consists of 16 varieties of non-hybrid seeds. My search for "heirloom" yielded results for Bonnie Best tomatoes and Cimarron Romaine lettuce.

I do like their GMO disclosure policy. Here it is from their site:

Hometown’s Safe Seed Pledge

"Seeds are the core of our business and vital to life on our planet. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. We pledge that we will not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds. We are not confident in the safety of GMO seeds and therefore will not sell them to our valued customers. We believe they are being released for public use prematurely. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds."

If you do purchase, please let me know
your experience with this company so I
may update the post with relevant information.
