Thanks Cristeen. I forgot to add links to the ones above and search that other thread.<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin"> I deleted a couple from the list you posted as shown above that are tied to Monsanto.

Maybe we can post here what we like about the above mentioned companies.<br>
My favorites are Heirloom Seeds, Seed Savers, groworganic.com (because they are local), and Baker Creek (aka rareseeds.com).<br><br>
Heirloom Seeds has really good organic butternut squash seeds. Very hardy. Good all around company that I've never had problems with.<br><br>
Baker Creek has lots of variety and always something new each year and fun. If I can ever get the cassabanana seeds to produce I'd be happy. I've tried thier nipple fruit too which is fun. I haven't tried putting it in a flower arrangement yet though. I always call them to make sure they have what I want because they will send a refund with your order and what they didn't have at the time.<br><br>
Seed Savers is always got lots to choose from as well.<br><br>
Groworganic.com (Peaceful Valley Farm Supply) sells seeds from renee's garden, seeds of change and several others. They know me by name when I walk in and have good organic potting soil and soiless seed starting mix. I just love them. I could spend all day there.

It is. I put it on the other list. It's still in Cristeen's post, but I deleted it off the top master list.

I'm confused on Fedco. I see you've removed it, but I thought we came to the conclusion that they've phased out their Seminis products?

No problem! I'm glad I could get this all in one place. It'll be nice because we can just keep adding to the list.

As far as I know they aren't. I left them off the list at the top. That's the master list.

I am not sure if you are just posting things that avoid Monsanto in the seeds themselves but I found this today <a href="http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia/organizationsORG/oca/campaign.jsp?campaign_KEY=12700" target="_blank">http://www.democracyinaction.org/dia...aign_KEY=12700</a> and it is showing that the GE sugar beet is going to be on shelves in 2008 for sale and that candy companies are urging this not to happen.<br>
Since <span style="text-decoration:underline;">M&M Mars owns Seeds of Change</span>, I think we need to keep our eyes open to see if they end up linked in the future.

The Fedco link went to the peaceful valley site.<br><br>
-Hmmm never had that happen. Wouldn't post my reply till I put in 50 characters or more. So, here they are<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">.

Thanks for the info. That is amazing that just about everything will have GE in it! That is disappointing and outraging!<br>
I thought Mars only owned the food side not the seed side. Is that correct? Anyone know?<br><br><div style="margin:20px;margin-top:5px;">

I didn't see these sites on the master list:<br><br><br>
Diane's Flower Seeds (she has veggies now, too).<br><a href="http://www.dianeseeds.com/Index.html" target="_blank">www.dianeseeds.com/Index.html</a><br><br>
and<br><br>
Wood Prairie Farm<br><a href="http://www.woodprairie.com/" target="_blank">www.woodprairie.com/</a><br><br>
This is a potato farm run by a family who was organic when organic was uncool <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile">

Where does ferry-morse go? I know they are sold at all of the 'big' stores, but I wonder for some who may not always order online or by catalogue.<br>
Also, I noticed a brand at Target called 'sean conway' and it was sucking me in, until I noted that their display fit oh so nicely into the burpee display and I just assumed burpee owns them? Maybe not? probably!<br>
sorry, I didn't want to bother both threads! <img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/orngbiggrin.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="orange big grin">

That's a good question. Does anyone know? I'll see if I can do a little research on that.
