We grow seeds for everyone, and for the health and well being of people and planet. We are a community-owned seed company, and we’re not interested in tricksy seed biotechnology, or dominating the world’s seed supply. Instead, we believe passionately in breeding open pollinated seeds that everyone can grow, everyone can save for the next year, and everyone can afford. All our sustainable futures depend on protecting their genetic biodiversity.
We have been founded as one of the first of a new wave of collaborative and effective, ecologically orientated seed producers for the UK. We have the expertise and over 20 years growing experience – and the will and determination – to grow better seeds for better food in a natural way that is resilient and safer for all.
We now have over 350 shareholders and have raised more than £450,000 towards our £750,000 target, but we still need to raise £300,000.
Why it matters
Our food system depends on viable, living seeds, capable of reproducing themselves. Sadly, few people realise how threatened the availability of open pollinated seeds is, or the manifold ways in which agri-business has taken ownership of seed production, resulting in the domination of fewer and ever-larger multi-national corporations and the decline of local and small-scale seed producers.
Will you help?
Our most immediate and urgent task is to find people who share our vision and will support our genuinely community-owned seed company. If you are interested, or feel you can help, please join or donate now to help secure the future for our natural food system.
