How Much Do We Need To Raise for Irish Seed Savers?

We need a total of €250,000 to ensure our survival. The money will be used as follows

  • €50,000 will be used to buy raw materials like rootstocks, pots, compost, tools, shop supplies so that we can grow our own sales and improve our future sustainability by making our seeds and trees available to YOU.
  • €50,000 will be used to finish our Seed Bank and ensure we make full use of this wonderful new building, the only one of its kind in Ireland
  • €100,000 will be used to buy our land outright so that we are not at the mercy of higher interest charges.
  • €50,000 will be held as a cash reserve so that we can manage our cashflow during the year to allow for the seasonality of our sales.
  • Whatever we raise we will spend in the order outlined above so that if for example we only raise €100,000 of our goal we will first secure our raw material for future years and complete our Seed Bank.
