WELCOME TO YOUR LONDON FREEDOM SEED BANK!

The VISION of our London Freedom Seed Bank:

~ RAISING AWARENESS: Organic London food growers growing and saving seeds for the new London Freedom Seed Bank: a sanctuary in London for protecting and storing our freedom seeds.
~ RE-SKILLING: restoring and reclaiming the diversity & knowledge about seed saving through re-skilling workshops
~ CELEBRATING: Freedom Seed Bank FESTIVAL – a yearly festival welcoming our Freedom Seeds
~ DISTRIBUTING: Free seeds for London Food Growers

‘Seed is the source of life and the first link in the food chain. Control over seed means a control over our lives, our food and our freedom’,. We should turn our roof tops into gardens which are seed sanctuaries because the seed, it is centuries of evolution, a gift of our ancestors and needs to be saved as a gift for future generations.’
Vandana Shiva
