As an advocate of organic plant-focused food, London-based Harvest & Filter are inspiring urban dwellers to grow their own by launching a collection of wild and heirloom seeds — and they’re already proving popular.
As an online business, Harvest & Filter offer a seed service tailored towards people with limited space or without gardens. Encouraging homegrowers to grow fruit, vegetables and herbs in small spaces such as balconies, indoor planters and window ledges, the wild and heirloom seeds available at launch include juicy wild strawberries; amaranth, an ancestral crop grown and harvested by ancient Mayan and Aztec civilisations; elderberries with naturally high levels of antioxidants and dark blue-green Nero di Toscano kale. A full list of untreated wild and heritage seeds can be found by joining the Harvest & Filter free subscription website. https://www.harvestandfilter.co.uk/
Audrey Louis from Harvest & Filter is excited about the potential of this new venture.
She said: “Essentially, what Harvest & Filter are doing is giving people in cities and suburban areas seeds and resources to grow their own healthy food.” At the very least, people can start growing with a planter or window box and a vision of the delicious and nutritious meals they’ll create that will incorporate the food they harvest.”
“We’re passionate about sharing information on the health benefits of certain foods. We pride ourselves in supplying untreated, naturally occurring seeds together with helpful tips and instructions, ensuring people have an opportunity to grow, in abundance, their own fresh and highly nutritious food.
“The ability to deliver such seeds is our way of strengthening the use of ancient, traditional and holistic methods towards better health.”
Harvest & Filter also support the use of organic and veganic practices towards growing food. Edible plants that grow from their seeds are highly likely to be significantly more nutritious and safer to eat than conventional produce grown with the help of questionable chemicals and methods.
According to the Office for National Statistics, the price of processed foods is falling in the UK. Meanwhile, the price of fresh fruits and vegetables continues to rise. The team at Harvest & Filter knows they have the power to help redress this unhealthy imbalance with the launch of their wild and heirloom seed store.
