seeds safe from mansanto

I found this list from: Home Grown Edible Landscapes on facebook:

Abundant Life Seeds
Amishland Seeds
Baker Creek Seed Co.
Berlin Seeds – no known website
Botanical Interests
Bountiful Gardens
Burpee Seeds (hybrid pepper and tomato seeds are provided by Monsanto)
Cook's Garden (owned by Burpee - see above)
Diane’s Flower Seeds (she has veggies now, too)
Fedco Seed Co. –
Garden City Seeds
Heirloom Acres Seeds
Heirlooms Evermore Seeds
Heirloom Seeds
High Mowing Seeds
Horizon Herbs
Kitchen Garden Seeds
Lake Valley Seeds
Livingston Seeds
Local Harvest
Mountain Rose Herbs
Organica Seed
Peaceful Valley Farm Supply
Pinetree (no GMO seeds but did have a long relationship with Seminis before being bought by Monsanto. They have promised to send me a list of those seeds so that consumers can avoid them if they desired.) *PineTree (Superseeds) just sent me the list of seeds they buy from Seminis. Please see below for the full list)
Renee’s Garden
Richters Herbs
Sand Hill Preservation Center
Seed Saver’s Exchange
Seeds of Change
Southern Exposure
Territorial Seed Company - *Tom Johns, the pres. of Territorial posted in the comments on my blog about Seminis being owned by Monsanto, and said customer service will provide a list of seeds they buy from Seminis, so you can avoid them. He also said that Seminis is providing less varieties every year (typical of Monsanto) and they are finding suitable replacements. So, don’t count them out completely.*
Tiny Seeds
Tomato Fest
Underwood Garden Seeds
Uprising Seeds
Victory Seeds
Wildseed Farms
Wood Prairie Farm

I encourage heirloom gardening, I think it is the best way to fight back and preserve a family of seeds that have a history of adapting to their environment safely.
