Growers & seed savers in the cold high altitude West should look into
International Seed Saving Institute http://seedsave.org/
The symbol to the right indicates the seed companies that have taken the Safe Seed Pledge
to NOT sell GMO seeds. Please support these companies.
The Safe Seed Pledge:
“Agriculture and seeds provide the basis upon which our lives depend. We must protect this foundation as a safe and genetically stable source for future generations. For the benefit of all farmers, gardeners and consumers who want an alternative, we pledge that we do not knowingly buy or sell genetically engineered seeds or plants. The mechanical transfer of genetic material outside of natural reproductive methods and between genera, families or kingdoms, poses great biological risks as well as economic, political, and cultural threats. We feel that genetically engineered varieties have been insufficiently tested prior to public release. More research and testing is necessary to further assess the potential risks of genetically engineered seeds. Further, we wish to support agricultural progress that leads to healthier soils, genetically diverse agricultural ecosystems and ultimately people and communities.”
Seed Saver Links:
Organic Seed Alliance sponsors workshops in the Pacific Northwest to teach seed
growing, selection for crop improvement, fundamentals of breeding for organics,
and the basics of seed cleaning and saving.

They have also announced their first online versions of Seed School.

Sacred Succulents was founded in 1997, borne from our love of plants and a calling to their conservation through propagation, dissemination and education. We have created a catalog that is fully illustrated and loaded with ethnobotanical and horticultural information including general succulent care and detailed seed germination and propagation techniques.
We grow our plants and produce our seed without the use of pesticides or synthetic fertilizers. We are not “certified organic” due to a general dislike of excessive paperwork and perhaps some degree of mistrust of the regulatory process. We use compost teas and EM microbial brews, kelp meal/extract, granitic rock dust, worm castings, mycorrhizal inoculents, and depending on the plant and its needs: alfalfa and neem meal, seabird and bat guano, and for some of our garden plants composted horse manure from a local source that uses only organic feed. We eschew such popular “organics” as blood, bone, and feather meal which are unsavory byproducts of industrial slaughterhouses, cotton and soybean meal which are byproducts of industrial agriculture often laden with pesticide residues, and fish emulsion/meal which are harvested from our oceans already depleted fisheries.

Bishop’s Homegrown / Face Of The Earth Seed Co began as a breeding project 6 years ago. Not content with low quality & un-adapted (to my conditions) varieties I chose to persue a science I knew little of – plant breeding. Making wide & varied controlled (often uncontrolled) crosses between varieties within a species we offered the resulting seeds to friends & gardeners around the world. We found much interest in our early work & some of those, now stable, varieties are listed here. Blending equal parts common sense & science my chosen career path infuses & enfolds my spirituality, love, & belief in the connection between humans & nature. We are devoted to creating new strains & populations uniquely suited to the wider Ohio Valley region & adapted to low-input “eco-logical” agriculture.

People often ask me how and why I became involved in growing peppers and I have one answer: it is a hobby that grew out of control.
Like many of you, I was dismayed at how few peppers were available at the grocery and nursery, so I began growing my own. Each pepper was so unique and delicious that I just kept growing more and more and more......I still feel there is a world of chiles out there that I have not tried but I am happily adding to my inventory each year.
A big thank you is owed to all of you who swapped seeds with me. Sharing and spreading chile diversity is a wonderful thing.
Also included in this catalog are sweet peppers, tomatoes, and tomatillos. There is nothing to compare with eating that first salsa fresh out of your own garden.

A program for preserving the diversity of our crop heritage. Worldwide, the genetic variability of nearly all plant species is dwindling at an alarming rate. Varieties which have been grown by farmers and gardeners for centuries are fast becoming extinct, and plant breeders and other crop workers believe this bodes ill for the future of agriculture everywhere. The Scatterseed Project was founded to help prevent such loss.

At Baker Creek, our mission is to provide the seeds of a sustainable food supply for everyone and keep heirloom varieties alive for future generations. We believe that farmers, gardeners and communities have the right to save their own seed, and in so doing preserve seed diversity and food security in an age of corporate agriculture and patented, hybridized or genetically modified seeds. All the seeds we sell can be saved, shared and traded, and we encourage people to save their own seed.
Interest in heirloom varieties has doubled and tripled in the last few years, and they are now showing up in major markets, television shows, high-class restaurants and everywhere quality produce is offered.
