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

After the initial giveaway, the Seeds of Hope Scotland project ran for another two years, continuing to give wildflower and vegetable seeds to good causes across Scotland.


During this time we also set up a Seed Amnesty, matching unwanted vegetable, flower and herb seeds with good causes that would like them. Generous folk from all over Britain donated hundreds of packets of spare seeds, and we shared them with groups across Scotland.

By the end of the Seeds of Hope Scotland project, we'd been able to give over 14,000 packets of seeds to 181 good causes!
