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.

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.
