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.

is the online home for Bill McDorman and Belle Starr, husband and wife, working to promote regional seed solutions. Together they conceived and founded the original Seed School in 2010 which has now graduated hundreds of new seed citizens. After being hired to be co-executive-directors of Native Seeds/SEARCH in 2011, they moved the successful 6 day Seed School program to Native Seeds/SEARCH. They are now again producing Seed School independently of Native Seeds/SEARCH and are now expanding the program to include locations throughout the Rocky Mountain West and the rest of the nation. They have also announced their first online versions of Seed School.
Sherizona Seed Co began a few years ago when some cactus fans were in search of saguaro seeds. It started off with an ebay store. Over the next few months the demand for all sorts of other desert seeds skyrocketed but all had one major request: to obtain desert seeds that are free of chemical treatments and are as true to their native structure as possible.

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.
