The 2010 Seeds of Change catalog offers seed for both the home gardener and the market grower, including the new All Lettuce Mix pictured on the catalog cover.
From an organic gardener’s point of view, there’s a lot to like about Seeds of Change.
Since 1989 the company has supported sustainable organic agriculture and all of its flower, vegetable and herb seed are 100% certified organic–1200 varieties in all.
The company has a large seed donation program and it also donates 1% of net sales to help organic growers around the world.
The Seeds of Change catalog is filled with heirloom, traditional, medicinal, rare and new seeds. New introductions this year include 6 salad mixes, White Sicilian Garlic, Dark Star Zucchini, Totem Strawberry and Fordhook Giant Chard–to name just a few.
Unusual varieties, like Red Swan Beans, share catalog space with old favorites like Kentucky Wonder green beans. Heirloom tomatoes include dependable growers like Stupice, tasty Brandywine and rare black tomatoes like Paul Robeson.
The catalog is carbon neutral as are the company’s operations. The catalog also provides gardeners with helpful information on growing conditions, planting information, harvest and storage recommendations and pest and disease prevention tips. Readers are directed to the Seeds of Change website to view additional selections.
But what I really love about the Seeds of Change catalog is its name. It’s not just a company name or a clever marketing strategy. It sums up the company’s mission.
