I get most of my seeds from Park and had no problem at all. I don't start a lot from seed, mostly greens and herbs. I buy fresh every year ... have a relatively short season and want to make the most of it, not gamble on seeds when I'm not sure of the quality. For the same reason (shortness of season) I buy seedlings for my few vegetables. I've had some funny experiences saving pepper seeds -- I learned very quickly how easily peppers cross-polinate and invented some of my very own new species!

Here's some info on saving seed from the Seed Savers site: Planting and Seed Saving Instructions Say that a few times before your morning coffee hits.

I save some seeds (white habanero, shiso, edamame, holy basil). We buy our seeds from a small local company that specializes in heirloom seeds, and haven't seen a shortge of anything. But, I did see articles on it lately.

Human nature being what it is, I wonder how many of these well intended gardens will actually be harvested. I LIKE spending the afternoon evening in the garden. A successful one requires some work but mostly persistence.
