Seed Savour

There are over 7,500 tomato species, and yet only a few are found in supermarkets. To counteract the effects of monoculture and preserve the rich diversity of species for current enjoyment and future generations, Sebastiaan Sennema has designed Seed Savour. This is a starter kit for growing original, non-hybrid, ‘heirloom’ vegetables. It comes complete with a bamboo spade, coconut seedling tray, compacted soil, and screw-on head that transforms any plastic PET bottle into a watering can. The kit is also a portal to an online community, where own-grown seeds (and stories) can be swapped and shared.
