Tom Stearns - High Mowing Seeds & The Center for an Agricultural Economy

Tom began gardening at an early age at his family home in CT.  Prior to completing a degree in Sustainable Agriculture at Prescott College in AZ, he began saving seeds.  In 1996 in Vermont, Tom began sharing these seeds with others through a small seed flyer.  High Mowing Organic Seeds has since expanded into one of the leading organic seed companies in the U.S., supplying both home gardeners and commercial growers.  Tom has served on the board of several agricultural organizations, most notably as the current President of The Center for an Agricultural Economy.  

(From BALLE Conference Bio....also, from hanging out with Tom, he's an awesome guy and a lot of fun....not uncommon among these world changers.)
