Survival Seeds was formed with the ethos of inspiring people from all walks of life to begin the journey of growing their own food. Our unique packaging and premium heirloom varieties make the perfect gift with endless potential.

The Survival Seeds Story

Survival Seeds was founded in 2020 from a combination of both passion and necessity. I left my corporate marketing role to go travelling in February 2020, but Covid-19 put a stop to the travel plans and I was left jobless, stuck at home and unable to find work. With plenty of time on my hands and a love for growing veggies, I decided to get a veggie garden going, but I couldn’t buy any seeds – ANYWHERE! Shops were sold out and every online seed retailer in the country had blocked orders due to unprecedented demand – it was such a positive amidst a global pandemic that so many people wanted to grow their own food.

Growing A Passion

I wanted to create a unique product that would inspire people from all walks of life to begin their journey toward being sustainable.
After countless phone calls, emails and hours searching online for seeds, I managed to source enough seeds from a local supplier to do my first run of around 50 tins.

Thankfully we’re now connected with a few local seed suppliers and our kits have become popular online, as well as being sold in a range of gift stores, nurseries and health food stores. We will continue to grow this little business into something bigger, while always remembering our humble roots and our ethos of ‘inspiring others to grow.’ Thanks for your ongoing support.
