Seed Savers Exchange
If you are interested in helping to preserve heirloom varieties and/or supporting gardeners who are working to maintain the older open-pollinated seed strains, or if you would just like to try your hand at growing a few antique varieties and maybe get a taste of a "real" tomato, then you will enjoy the non-profit organization, Seeds Savers Exchange. This year they are offering transplants as well as seeds.
