Seed sanctuary

lotus seeds

We’ve pledged to become a safe haven for open pollinated, non hybridised GMO free seeds. That means we’ll try to avoid using F1 varieties, anything treated with chemicals and where possible, aim to use organic seed. We hope you’ll join us.

We are going to seed save and promote seed saving so others can learn more and we can develop our own Southwark seed bank.

Legislation in Europe and beyond is threatening the freedom of home growers and farmers to save and use their own seed.

Saving seed is a brilliant way of increasing diversity, maintaining locally adapted varieties and sharing local resources amongst people who don’t always rely on a cash economy.
