Seeds: Organic/Heirloom/Open Source

The Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies (AOSCA) maintains an Organic Seed Finder website to allow organic seed vendors and potential customers to find one another.  The seed listings are dynamic and change during the year to reflect new vendors and seed availability.
The Organic Seed Growers and Trade Association (OSGATA) develops, protects and promotes the organic seed trade and its growers, and assures that the organic community has access to excellent quality organic seed, free of contaminants and adapted to the diverse needs of local organic agriculture.
The Organic Seed Alliance advances the ethical development and stewardship of the genetic resources of agricultural seed.
The Institute for Responsible Technology (IRT) is a strong advocate for a non-GMO food supply.
The Open Source Seed Initiative (OSSI) was created by a croup of plant breeders, farmers, seed companies and sustainability advocates “who want to free the seed.”  OSSI is working to create a pool of open source varieties, to connect farmers and gardeners to suppliers of open source seed, and to inform and educate citizens about seed issues.
The Family Farmers Seed Exchange is a group of experienced organic seed farmers from California, Colorado, Nebraska, New Mexico, North Dakota, Oregon, Washington who participate in a seed production and marketing cooperative in response to the growing consolidation and homogenization of the seed industry.
