Seed Co-operative

Whilst reading the Permaculture Magazine this morning, I took note of an advertisement for a company that produces and sells organic and biodynamic seed. The company is based in Lincolnshire (UK).

A little intrigued, I looked up Seed Co-operative on the internet and discovered that they seek shareholders to help them build the business. Now, it would not be proper for me to endorse the company, as I have had no prior dealings with them. On the other hand, you may be in a position to help – or maybe this is simply a company you would like to buy from.

I haven’t decided yet whether I will donate or become a shareholder. However, I will definitely look into buying some seeds from them. I might even arrange a visit for next time I’m in that neck of the woods. 

About Helen

I have always been interesting in living a more environmentally friendly lifestyle and used to do what I could. Now, I have come to realise that we have reached such a point in terms of environmental degradation that it is more important - perhaps - to focus on building resilience. I therefore do as much as I can to reuse, grow my own and encourage a supportive community, for example. I also keep reading and learning all the time.

  1. This is excellent, Helen, what a great find! Will be great if you can to see the farm!

    That sounds very nice. I am very excited at the prospect of seeing how the relationship may ‘grow’ (pun not intended, but there you are!).

    I’m not sure I could become a stake-holder. BUT… I had a look in the shop and they are not expensive at all.

    I may well start using them to buy seeds. Knowing that the seed will be clean, free from pesticides and coming from quality stock is worth the odd pennies in price between these guys and people like Suttons.

    Also… Supporting local(ish) companies is worth it.
