Seed Co-operative

Seed Co-operative, the UK’s community owned seed company, is one of three finalists in the Future Food category of the BBC Food and Farming Awards 2017.

At the UK’s community Seed Co-operative they grow seeds for everyone, and for the health and well being of people and the planet. They are a community-owned seed company, not interested in seed biotechnology, or dominating the world’s seed supply.

David Price of the Seed Co-operative said “We are delighted to have been given this chance to tell our story about the future of food. Food is not ‘man-made’ but produce of the natural world and it all starts with seed. We are bringing seed production back home and re-connecting farmers, growers, gardeners, chefs and ‘people who eat’ with the natural world, through co-operation. Vitality, diversity and resilience is what our seed is all about.”
