The Seedstead Logo
The Seedstead logo is a clear derivative of the the Livingseeds logo.
Both logos are immediately recognizable as being from the "same stock"
with many similarities in the design being readily apparent in both logos.
Our parent company is South African based Livingseeds, the countries largest and longest running heirloom seed company.
Our hand device was conceived with the desire to convey the ancient tale of seed saving from generation to generation. The intention of heirloom seed is that it be handed down through the generations to maintain the variety and future seed supply. The upper hand is clearly a mature hand that is giving seed to the next generation, which in the original sense is the raw description of what heirloom seeds are.
Simply put, it is the idea and practice of children, our next generation, being empowered and entrusted with the means of food production, for themselves and future generations which is of vital importance to all of us.
Teaching our future generation to plant and save seed is something that everyone needs to work towards. These are the core values of what The Seedstead and Livingseeds wants to uphold and perpetuate, on a local, national and global scale.
Planting seed, making a food garden and saving seed is literally our core focus, we live and breathe these goals and our desire is that you too will take up the banner of "Bringing Seed Home" to plant, to grow and to share in your home.
