We are a Social Enterprise and as such are committed to distributing over 50% of our products into places of need within the London area.
We want to create spaces where people-growing-spirit-nature are synthesised as we believe the present model of the split system between urban centres, agriculture structures,spirituality, and the natural world is non-symbiotic, unhealthy, self-destructive, unsustainable in a just manner, and socially schizophrenic.
