Plants are Politics

I just went home to Maine for a long weekend. I got to reading a friend's FedCo catalog -- that once meant Federation of Coops. This distributor of seeds and plants grew out of the organic food coop movement in Maine and is part of a movement of maintaining independence through plant integrity, supporting local producers, and practicing organic and renewable agriculture. Plants are political. Fedco's catalogs are written for growers in Maine's zone 4-5 climate, and have a wealth of information on culture, propogation, and the history of the plants many of us take for granted. It's worth downloading them just for the great classic plates they've duplicated.

Fedco Seeds, Organic Growers Supply, Moose Tubers, Fedco Trees, & Fedco Bulbs catalog requests

Is there anything like this in the mid-Atlantic region?
