South Africa's supplier of locally grown heirloom and open pollinated vegetable seed.

Livingseeds started off in 2009 with only 34 varieties of heirloom and open pollinated vegetable seed on our website (but we had only 17 in stock), we now list over 400 varieties! We grow well over 600 varieties on our own property every year. Many of the varieties we receive are given to us as 1 or 2 seeds and we need to grow-out the varieties over a number of years. Occasionally we get given seed that has not been properly isolated. It takes us 4-6 years to ‘clean-up’ the variety and bring it back to its original glory. Only then can we offer these varieties to you to enjoy and hopefully share with your family and friends.

Livingseeds also has a small, specialised network of dedicated growers that share our love of heirloom and open pollinated vegetable seed. This unique network assists us in increasing our seed production of varieties that we are unable to grow out on our own property.

Imagine getting up in the morning to "live your dream", that's exactly where we are at, living out our passion for selfsustainability and leading others to a more independent future in their food. We homeschool our 5 children, who all have a very clear idea of where their food comes from. They are all involved in the processes required to produce food from veggies to beef. They realise that food requires effort, and yes, it does grow in dirt!
