    The Seed
    is a new social enterprise in Buckfastleigh located next to Plum hairdressers on Fore St, which is aiming to make nourishing wholesome food available for everyone at a price they can afford.

    The wholefood store will be selling a variety of items both food and non-food at more affordable prices and the café will be providing refreshments and a daily meal comprising of a few healthy delicious dishes sold on a ‘what you can afford’ basis.

    1. Support our crowdfunding campaign and receive a unique and exciting gift in return…
    Please help to raise the funds needed to bring The Seed into reality. Crowdfunding is a fun way that a community can come together to fund something they believe in. People pledge a certain amount of money and in return they receive a unique and exciting gift or experience in return. Each reward is different depending on how much is pledged. We have some amazing gifts and experiences on offer to those who pledge such as seasonal hampers, lunch for 2, a unique wool crafting afternoon, bushcraft workshop to name just some of them! Its an all or nothing concept. If enough people pledge money to help us reach our target of £5000 then The Seed will receive the funds but if we don’t reach the target then we don’t receive a penny and pledgers get their money back! And we have a limited time to raise the funds too so if you would like to pledge please don’t delay.

    So please visit our crowdfunding page online at:


    to make your pledge and help us reach our target. If you don’t feel confident using the website, please pop in and we can help you to make your pledge. Also if you are on facebook please ‘like’ our page (www.facebook.com/ourseed) and ‘share’ the crowdfunding page to help spread the seed.
