There are over 7,500 tomato species in the world, yet most people only buy and eat what the local supermarket has to offer — which isn’t much at all. To address this issue, Sebastiaan Sennema (Studio Harvest [1]) created the Seed Savour – an eco-friendly starter kit for growing your own food [2], supporting biodiversity, and sharing seeds with other people.

Seed Savour was Sebastiaan Sennema’s final project during his time at the renowned Design Academy of Eindhoven [3]. It consists of a coconut seedling tray, a bamboo spade, organic compressed soil and a screw-on head that turns any PET bottle into a watering can. The kit also comes with Heirloom seeds for growing unique veggies that support food independence.
