Seeds of Change?

I'm getting geared up to start planning my garden for next year and the issue of what seeds to buy keeps coming up. I'm hearing a lot about big Agribusiness and GMOs and global takeover of the seed supply. It is very scary stuff. Anyway, for anyone who eats, here are some articles you should read about this:

And don't hold out for help from the government on this one:

I think I will only be ordering non GMO seeds for my garden. Can't handle the thought that I would be contributing to the destruction of the stability of our food supply otherwise.

Bountiful Gardens was the company we supported and trust. They are all open-pollinated, non-GMO seeds. many are certified organic or at least grown without pesticides. They also are very sustainbly-minded, with things like only printing a seed catalog once a yr and printing on black and white, non-glossy, recycled paper kinda stuff. And it's all non-profit. The only downside for you would be that they are located in CA. Not exactly local.
