Where can I spend my Seedstock?

Seedstock was launched into circulation in January 2013 with a small group of founding businesses that will grow quickly in the weeks and months to come. Seedstock becomes more useful and has a greater positive impact with each new business that joins. If you run a business, please help seed the change by registering your business to participate.

More businesses are joining all the time, so check back often, or better yet, subscribe to our newsletter to find out about new businesses as they join!

The businesses in this list are listed in alphabetical order to provide a quick overview of who's involved. To view an interactive and filterable map of participating businesses, please click here.

Derived from the mirror image of ATACAMA, this reflects the following properties of the Atacama Desert: raw, pure, natural landscape, and taking inspiration from the following statement by American writer, Wallace Stegner: "Deserts and plateaus and canyons are not a country of big returns, but a country of spiritual healing, incomparable for contemplation, meditation, solitude, quiet, awe, peace of mind and body."
