Sowing the seeds of a resilient food system

Growing organic diversity in our fields, soils and seeds means working with Nature’s genius and embedding resilience for future generations.

Growing health, naturally

Seeds of open pollinated varieties, bred and maintained for organic systems, are the essential ingredients for farming that nurtures the health of our planet and people.

Democracy is at the heart of what we do

We work with a network of growers and share our skills to build a closer relationship between people, the food they eat and the farmers who grow it.

The availability of organic open pollinated seed has been in decline for many years.  The Seed Co-operative pare of particular significance.

Ben Raskin, Soil Association

The Seed Co-operative provides a community based solution from which growers and the whole food supply chain will be able to benefit.

Shane Holland, Slow Food UK

The work that the Seed Co-operative is embarking on is urgent and worthy of support.

Andy Goldring, Permaculture Association

Seed Co-operative are a vital part of the infrastructure needed for family farms to survive.

Sir Julian Rose, International Coalition to Protect the Polish Countryside 

Seed Co-operative is countering a potential mass extinction of the seeds we depend on for health, vitality and diversity in our food.
