It's happening over at UpCountry Living. I am ordering a slew of seeds from Seed Savers Exchange, Johnny's Selected Seeds and Baker Creek Heirloom Seeds.

The list of seeds I'm ordering is viewable at: http://upcountry-living.com/blog/2013/2/4/seed-order-2013-a-for-amb...

Nice selection! Is Johnny's GMO free?

We ordered all our food/herb seeds from Baker Creek. I've got my seed starting materials and mini-greenhouse ready to go :)

Hi Carrie,

I don't believe that Johnny's is 100% GMO free. I base that assumption off of this recent blog post from Northwest Edible Life that I found particularly interesting. http://www.nwedible.com/2012/12/a-brief-history-of-monsanto-and-see... 

I take the time when making choices to find out what each strains' specific 'features' are, in hopes that I can keep GMOs out of my own garden.

I did come across this page.  I don't know the credibility but Johnny's is on there as well as the company I use, Gourmet Seed International. http://www.councilforresponsiblegenetics.org/viewpage.aspx?pageid=261

I quickly scanned but am heading back to fully read the blog post you linked to.  It's so darn hard to know where, ultimately, your product is coming from.  Frustrating!
