SEEDS (The Sustainable Environment and Ecological Development Society) is a voluntary organisation registered under the Societies Act of India.
SEEDS was formed in 1994 as an informal group of students and pedagogues of the School of Planning and Architecture, New Delhi, whose common interests brought them together and made them carry human habitat environment related exercises beyond set academic targets.
The SEEDS team comprises a group of young professionals drawn from development related fields. In addition, there is a panel of senior associates and young volunteers facilitating the various programmes.
Since its inception, SEEDS has been working on the path to the ideal habitat for communities – a habitat that is sustainable and safe.

Famous quotes containing the word seeds:
“They say the seeds of what we will do are in all of us, but it always seemed to me that in those who make jokes in life the seeds are covered with better soil and with a higher grade of manure.”
—Ernest Hemingway (18991961)
“A candle in the thighs
Warms youth and seed and burns the seeds of age;”
—Dylan Thomas (19141953)
“Some hours seem not to be occasion for any deed, but for resolves to draw breath in. We do not directly go about the execution of the purpose that thrills us, but shut our doors behind us and ramble with prepared mind, as if the half were already done. Our resolution is taking root or hold on the earth then, as seeds first send a shoot downward which is fed by their own albumen, ere they send one upward to the light.”
—Henry David Thoreau (18171862)
