Seeds of Change is the oldest heirloom seed farm in the United States. With the rampant industrialization, hybridization and genetic modification, Seeds of Change is preserving the precious resources of heirloom pure organic seeds in their seed bank.
About Seeds of Change, from their website:
“In 1989, we at Seeds of Change started with a simple mission: to help preserve biodiversity and promote sustainable, organic agriculture. We sought to do this by cultivating and disseminating an extensive range of open-pollinated, organically grown, heirloom and traditional vegetable, flower and herb seeds. This is still our mission.
We seek out traditional varieties from the Americas and treasured heirlooms from abroad, many of which are in danger of being lost due to the rapid consolidation within the seed industry and the decline of indigenous agriculture and seed-saving knowledge.
In addition to our seeds, we’ve since grown to offer a broad selection of 100% organic seedlings, pears, apples, as well as gardening tools, books and an extensive line of our own organic foods. We believe there is a solution to one of modern day’s largest environmental crisis: The loss of diversity and erosion/pollution of our precious soil. Our conventional agricultural methods are polluting our planet, ourselves and future generations, as well as squandering our valuable soil, water, and energy resources. We believe we can make a change to all of this: starting with our seeds.”
