Seeds - buying and saving

I’m a big fan of open-pollinated, non-GMO, organically grown heirloom seeds. The only seeds I buy need to be non-GMO and open-pollinated, and I prefer if they’re heirloom/heritage seeds and they were grown organically. But if they’re not organic then they will be once I get them and save some of the seed. Not only does their heirloom status (generally classed as being pre-WWII) indicate some connection with the past, but it means they have been preserved because of positive characteristics other than their capacity to be stored and transported without damage.
