Biodiversity and Superfoods

Let Grow Nature!

Long ago there was an abundance of superbly delicious wild edible plants everywhere…

Now we realize that these easy to grow paleolithic fruits and vegetables offer top taste and nutrition.

Today 2 Billions hectares of land needs regeneration, it's the size of South–America.

The Challenge is that we need enough seeds to plant one trillion trees plus their companion superfoods…

Regenerating Nature by planting seedballs is easy fast fun cheap and efficient…

Some Superfood grow all around us, some are very rare. Learn how to save their seeds and multiply these delicious treasures.

For SeedTheGlobe fighting global warming and multiplying organic farming, it's the same thing.

Wild plants for the future of Organic

Wild plants are the pinnacle of Organic. In 2015, almost half (43%) of the world's Certified Organic land was used for commercial wild plant harvesting and honey production.

We could increase this trend, which is almost undeveloped in North America. It is a solution for the future of remote areas, it could be the lifeline of the forest industry in Quebec. It could also be the famous Organic 3.0 that a lot of people are trying to realize.

For centuries Amazonian tribes have multiplied wild edible and medicinal plants in their jungle. We could do the same thing, but bigger with Seedballs.

Helping 500 million small farmers to become organic

Worldwide we should replant an area larger than all of South America, and this area is increasing rapidly. Unfortunately the usual planting methods are too expensive.

Some startups want to use drones to plant billions of Seedballs. Their recipes and methods of making Seedballs are secret.

SeedTheGlobe wants to democratize Seedballs. This will allow small farmers to make Seedballs for a very low cost, and fight against global warming, by doing Organic Permaculture.

Naturally robust and vigorous seeds

We need enough seeds to plant trillions of trees, plus all the other plants needed for productive and healthy ecosystems. It's a gigantic opportunity.

70% of the remaining biodiversity of the planet is on the Aboriginal tribes and Native people land. They are the best specialists of Superfoods and Wild Medicinal Plants.

We want to build a system of franchises of local craft business producing Seedballs, harvesting natural seeds, and sharing information.

Examples of Seedballs usage

Replanting a National Park in Pakistan

As in many places around the world, the ecosystem and beauty of Margalla Hills Park are deteriorating so quickly that they lack the budget to replant with the usual methods.

In 2018 an oil company organized an ecological promotional event. Guided by park workers, visitors walking through park trails are invited to throw Seedballs made with trees and flower seeds. The Seedballs were made by Aboriginal people living in the park. The results have been so good that the WWF and the Pakistan Air Force want to launch Seedballs by plane all over Pakistan.

Revolutionizing agriculture in desert regions

Since 2012 Seedballs technology has been developed by the University of Hohenheim in Germany and Senegalese and Nigerian Agricultural Research Institutes, in collaboration with several farmers' associations.

As the beginning of the rainy season is more and more unpredictable, farmers often have to replant the fields many times. Seedballs improved seedling establishment, reduced labor demand, increased women farmers' participation and improved yields. The conclusion is that Seedballs can improve the lives of hundreds of millions of people.

In England two companies sell in more than 400 stores

The Seedball market is well developed and has won several awards in the horticultural industry.

England suffers drastic decrease in bee populations and other pollinators. People are increasingly aware of the importance of multiplying wildflowers.

Wild Salad Recipe from our collaborator François Couplan an ethnobotanist scientist of international renown. He has published 85 different books on wild edible plants, wild cooking, nature and other aspects related to the relationship between man and plants. He teaches us to better trust Nature.

African Seedballs Tools from our collaborator Nwankwo Charles Ikenna a scientist from Hohenheim University working to optimize Seedball technology for Millet (Pennisetum glaucum) production, in the semi–desert regions of the African Sahel. Their Seedballs are cylindrical or square.

Researchers at the University of Hohenheim have aimed to invent as simple as possible small tools to make Seedballs, especially to help women farmers for whom Seedballs can be a fun and profitable way to garden on a large scale.

We invent artisan tools to make Seedballs

By making your own Seedballs you can garden and regenerate Nature by harvesting yourself more vigorous, wild and easy-to-grow seeds.

Pyramidal Seedballs Mold made from recycled construction material. The Purpose is to multiply natural superfoods with Seedballs. With this mold I easily made several thousand professional quality Seedballs, of the type found on the American market for 50 ¢ each. The results of field tests with these Seedballs have been wonderful. We have a product for Urban Agriculture…

In addition we are working on two other other Seedballs tool designs: one in the shape of a claw and the other as a roll. We are also experimenting with agglomeration methods to produce our new green manures fertilizers.

We really tested Seedballs

Learning how to make and use Seedballs in a professional way takes several years.

Many Seed Balls mean a lot of fun in sight.

Field trials for 2 years. We are looking for a bigger place.
