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.
