About Seed

SEED is a small public benefits organisation with a vision of contributing to city-wide resilience by inspiring and skilling our people.

Although we work a lot with gardens, we believe that change happens through people – it is capacitated people that make lasting change.

Our work is guided by the permaculture principles: people care, Earth care and surplus share. We are systems-aware and believe in collaboration and adaptive learning. We also believe that working with youth is a strategic change lever.

SEED is based in Mitchells Plain on the Cape Flats, outside of Cape Town. Our programs have had national reach.
