Sounds awesome but I need some inspiration…
Our seed kits are about so much more than just growing. They inspire and create knowledge, beauty, friendship, nature, relaxation, fun, appreciation, mindfulness, collaboration, change, connection & growth.
But don’t just take our word for it, check out some of the people who’ve grown wildflowers from our kits so far…
Digging Deeside, Shotton
Digging Deeside is a community garden in Shotton, North Wales. Daz is one of the people who helped to sow a wildflower patch using our seed kit. “I was in an accident and had a head injury. After that, for a long time, I was scared to go out anywhere, worried about what might happen. But now I come here most days." - Daz

Foston Hall Women’s Prison, Derby
Marilyn Carthy is an English teacher at Foston Hall Women’s prison in Derby. She incorporated growing the seed kits into her English lessons with the women at the prison who also do all of the gardening.
“To be able to feel things, touch them, smell them, that whole experience in all those different senses and the feelings you get from it. It’s something I can’t explain, you’ve just got to go and feel it I think” - Quote from one of Marilyn’s students

Glen and the Yorkshire Ambulance Service, Sheffield
Glen Watson rallied his colleagues and friends to transform a dull, unloved space near to the ambulance station in Sheffield, where he works as a paramedic.
“I just thought, why not? The area is perfect for it, it may help improve staff morale and welfare, it may help our native wildlife which I’m very passionate about and it will most definitely enhance the area around the station… I approached my employer to see if it was something we could get involved with, set up a Facebook group and asked my colleagues if they were interested in getting involved too. I was amazed that over 20 colleagues responded positively to the idea, around 1/3 of the workforce at my station; which is a lot when you consider the fact that, like all UK ambulance services, we are stretched to and beyond our limits by an ever growing demand for our attendance." - Glen
