Rediscovering Wild 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.

The Seedball store where you can sell your seeds of trees and natural superfoods.

The project required a lot of testing

The goal is to find inexpensive ways to make efficient Seedballs in large quantities with hand tools and seeds that you can harvest yourself. Our mission is to provide new sources of income for small farmers and Indigenous peoples, while helping them regenerate Nature. Because this will allow the cultivation of large quantities of organic food at an affordable price.

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

Seedballs are great for growing salads, flowers and fine herbs.

Seedballs can sprout in incredibly difficult conditions.

Testing a grid for producing Seedballs

Sylvain Picker October 22 2018

One of the best designs I've come up with is a plastic mold made from recycled construction material—an obsolete reflector grid for fluorescent light. With this mold I easily made several thousand professional quality Seedballs, of the type you can find on the American market for 50¢ each.

However there are two problems. Firstly the grid used to build this design is covered with a chrome paint that does not resist abrasion, it contaminates the Seedballs, making them unfit for organic farming. Second, producing this mold in industrial quantities requires an investment of tens of thousands of dollars, for each Seedball size that we want to make. And we have no idea of the market size.

The only big market that seems to exist is that of poor farmers in Africa, and they need a very cheap tool, or even better a tool they can manufacture themselves.

So I started working on two other designs, one that looks a little bit like a claw, and the other is a rolling process. In theory these new designs will allow people to handcraft Seedballs in large quantities.

Our collaborators

We are very lucky to be able to count on the advice of 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.
