During the first Covid-19 lockdown, we gave away over 10,000 packets of wildflower seeds to good causes in Scotland.  


Some were established charities, others were community gardening projects, school groups or teams of people who came together specifically to help folk during the pandemic. A few were even small businesses, offering their services as safe, local seed pick-up points!

When we transitioned into working as a permanent social enterprise, we committed to spending 10% of everything we make on running more seed giveaways.


So for example - if you spend £10 in our online shop, £1 of that will go into our giveaway fund. That's what allows us to continue to help good causes, on an ongoing basis.
