The SSAW Collective is a community of growers and makers, committed to a regenerative way of working and designing with seasonal produce.
The SSAW Collective was founded by three friends working together as freelancers, with backgrounds and interests that go way beyond flowers, farming and food.
As conscious creators, we are motivated by practices that are led by nature. A movement towards a slower, more considered approach that benefits both people and the planet; advocating for equal opportunities, fair wages and positive ways of working; regenerating soils, sequestering carbon and replenishing insect populations.
We stand for biodiversity, accessibility and creativity. Our aim is to create and curate thought provoking work - be it floral, food, or farming - that celebrates the ephemerality of nature, promoting true seasonality and sustainability.
Joining forces allows us to take on more ambitious and challenging briefs. It gives us the opportunity to be better and braver creators; to produce more interesting, intelligent work, unique to the specifications of each project.
We are here to encourage each other and other small startups, ensuring that we stay true to our values by challenging each other on our ethical responsibilities as creators. With an inclusive approach, we are eager to expand the collective and collaborate with others who feel their work holds the same intrinsic connection to and respect for the environment, building a platform to support each other and share resources.
Catie Jarman - Reimagining soil
I’m writing this from under a starry sky after the fall of an autumnal day, right in the middle of England. I’ve reliably heard that the furthest place from any coastline is only 10 miles up the road. It is a pretty perfect place to get curious about the subterranean world below our every step. I’m about to unashamedly wax lyrical about soil and do my best to bring together a symphony of mechanisms, myth, poetry, cyclical nature, science and some enchanting tales about humans who are ushering back soil microbes into their role as regenerators. I’ll close with a few words on what it looks like to be part of the global reimagining of compost, who knows what will happen in between!
We sell flowers fresh from our fields from April to October
