A healthy perspective: 100% organic food from 100% organic seeds!

Status Quo: Only 20% of organic food comes from organic seeds

Organic food from organic seeds: does that sound like a matter of fact to you? Well, it should be - really! - but the reality is different. In more than 80%, organic farmers and organic gardeners have to use conventional seeds - because organic seeds are not available.

Organic farming needs strong, resilient, open pollinated plants and seed varieties

For organic agriculture to continue to thrive, farmers need strong, organic, open pollinated plants and seed varieties. Fertile plants, that are resilient to climate change. Living plants, that have the ability to sustainably feed us and nurture our soils at the same time. Plants, that carry living seeds which will secure the harvest of our future.

High potential for organic plant breeding in the South of Europe

In the south of Europe, organic plant breeding and seed production is still in its infancy. Countries like Spain, Portugal or Morocco are incredibly rich in fruits and vegetables with a distinctive taste, optical characteristics and seductive scents. At the same time, their farmers already suffer heavily from the consequences of climate change. What they need are high-quality, organic seeds - "living seeds" - that bear healthy, tasty fruits despite the increasing heat, droughts, and pests.

Living Seeds: We work towards 100% organic!

Our non-profit association Living Seeds - Lebende Samen e.V. was founded in 2015 by committed visionaries who believe that 100% organic food from 100% organic seeds is possible - if the needed efforts are being made. Ever since, we have gathered funds for organic plant breeding projects in the Mediterranean and created a network of like-minded supporters who are willing to make "100% organic" come true.
