We’re grateful to Edible SEATTLE for featuring OSA in the November/December 2010 issue with the story: “Big Ag vs. Small Seed: The Organic Seed Alliance fights the good fight on multiple fronts.” If you live in Seattle, pick up a copy! And for the rest of the world, here’s a PDF version.

Fortunately, Pacific Northwest farmers, independent regional seed companies, backyard growers, and those of us who eat, have the Organic Seed Alliance (OSA) on our side.
