Unfotrunately I didn't save the packaging but Whole Foods sells organic herbs and spices.  Next time in the store I'll check the company's name, or someone on the forum may help us out.

Hello there.  I suggest to students that they join Frontier Co-op.  You can do so by calling 1-800-669-3275 and request to join.  There is a 'joining fee' and they will send you their latest catalogue for you to order wholesale ....lots of choices for organic supplies!! Have fun and keep cooking Eating for Health.  Kathy.

What about organic herb plants?  Does Frontier also sell them and send across the country?  I would like to grow herbs in my kitchen for cooking. :)

Hi,
I recently asked a similar question and got the following answer:

A great online resource for buying herbs/roots is Mountain Rose, at www.mountainroseherbs.com. You can buy small or large quantities, with discounts available for larger amounts. The quality of the herbs is great, and they have many other herb-related products, including tinctures, tea making supplies, medicine making supplies. They also make some really nice blends of their own.

Check it out!

I purchased a bunch of beautiful organic seeds (herbs, veg, flowers) from Botanical Interests at a nursery in Santa Fe, NM when I was visiting there.  I don't recall the name of the nursery, but you might be able to find them in other nurseries in your area.  I just looked online and they (BI) have a website you can order from, too, www.botanicalinterests.com, where you will find all sorts of stuff organic!

What I like about starting with seeds is there’s a wider variety of choices available and it is fascinating and refreshing to nurture and watch a plant to grow.

Happy sowing and growing!!!

Thanks you for all your inputs,
Last time bought from the company named thyme garden, in their web page says organically and locally grown herbs and plants. But in reality they sent me non-organic, non-local herbs and spices, plus they refuse telling who their supplier are.  I had to return all, by the way took more than 20 days to get here, so sense then I wish find one place from whom to buy most of the herbs and spices: Here in south Florida organically herbs and spices cost about $3.99 and up.
thanks to all you.
