Seeds of Change® was founded in 1989 by passionate gardeners with a vision
to make organically grown seeds available to gardeners and farmers, while
preserving countless heirloom seed varieties in danger of being lost to the
"advances" of modern industrial agriculture. For 27 years, we have remained
true to our original vision by offering a wide selection of organic seeds
including heirloom, traditional, and rare seeds. Our seeds are produced
through a network of certified organic family farms and professional
growers. Through these partnerships, we continually cultivate study and
develop seeds with the goal of producing the finest certified organic
varieties to share with our fellow gardeners and farmers. In 1997 our
business expanded to also include Organic Food inspired by the notion that
great taste and sustainability go hand in hand.   We now offer a wide
variety of Ready to Heat organic Rice and Grain varieties. For more
