SeedChange (formerly USC Canada)

USC Canada is a non-profit, international development organization working to improve livelihoods by promoting agricultural biodiversity. The organization was founded in 1945 by Lotta Hitschmanova as the Unitarian Service Committee of Canada. USC Canada’s mission is to promote sustainable living through strong rural communities with family farms and healthy ecosystems. The Canadian organization partners with programs in Africa, Asia, and Latin America to provide training and to promote self-sustaining communities that strengthen biodiversity, food sovereignty, and the human rights. As of 2009, the organization is run by a staff of 110. USC Canada also works to influence global food production policies and practices that nurture fertile landscapes, regenerating the water, soils and vegetation that seeds, plants, and animals depend on.
