“Seeds of Scotland is a Highland-based seed company located just north of Inverness. Our fields overlook the beautiful Cromarty Firth. We are committed to promoting a sustainable and diverse food system by offering locally grown seeds that are adapted to Scottish growing conditions. We grow our seeds using agroecological farming practices that prioritize soil health, biodiversity, and environmental sustainability. Every seed is grown, dried, cleaned, and packaged by hand.
We rent two parcels of land which have a total area of around 1 hectare, Both of which were previously parts of larger fields used for conventional arable farming. The fields are situated close to a large farm steading where we have access to several buildings and spaces as well as power and electricity. We gained access to the land at the end of March 2023 and have recently started the process of organic certification.”
Please bring your own packed lunch. Hot refreshments provided.
Free for Landworkers’ Alliance members & supporters, £5 for non-members
