A Food Revolution Starts With Seed

A Food Revolution Starts With Seed

by Josiah Meldrum

Access to seed, to the varieties we know should be being grown - because they taste great, have fantastic nutritional properties or are well suited to specific climates or geographies - is often incredibly difficult. ⁣One way or another that has to change.

Just as we seek to bring diversity back onto farms, to reintroduce forgotten and overlooked grains, pulses and seeds, we encourage the same for other crops and ask home gardeners and allotmenteers to do likewise.⁣ To build a movement.

Over Seed Week (18-22 January) Seed Sovereignty will be sharing stories from across the growing UK and Ireland movement for #SeedSovereignty, bringing you inspiration and practical tips and tricks for the new growing season.⁣ Change is coming.

Join them to: ⁣

🌱 Learn new seed skills.⁣
🌱 Find out where to buy the best biodiverse, ecological seed suited to your region.⁣
🌱 Hear from expert seed growers & savers from across our fair isles.⁣
🌱 Meet the people coordinating the revival of seed diversity.⁣
🌱 Join them for our #SeedStories event on January 20th.⁣
