Growing Seed is a registered non- political, non-profit social organization established in 30th March 2011 and got registered in the year 2013. The idea was to do some activities related to science and public awareness which will help the people. In initial days Growing Seed used to demonstrate science and superstition related demonstration and health as well as blood donation camps. Later Growing Seed took other activities based on science and social welfare. Growing Seed currently organizes different social awareness camps on monthly basis in different parts of the state of Tripura.
It was 2011, some school going students after their HS examination decided to do something; something which will help society a little bit. So they started the group and named it “Growing Seed”, the seed which will eventually grow and will become a large tree. Initially, they started doing small social awareness programmes, progressive and scientific thinking campaigns to curb prejudices and superstition. Later started incorporating more and more things, including free medical camps, blood donation camps, helping needy students and children as well as cultural activities. It was a transition period when people were moving from books and print media to social media. The practice of culture and literature were taking a back seat. So the Growing Seed started publishing their yearly cultural magazine named “Uttaran” to motivate the young generation toward creative writing and literature. Within a short period, the Growing Seed organisation became very popular in Tripura due to their unorthodox approach toward change. Being a very dynamic organisation; Growing Seed has many stark differences with conventional non governmental organisations even though it's a registered social organisation (registered under society registration act 1860). Currently, Growing Seed has many satellite enterprises ranging from Agriculture to Health care; literature to entrepreneurship development. The secret behind the success of Growing Seed organisation is that it does not believe in social limits and always venturing out for new and innovative approaches to help the society.
Growing Seed started working on many other different social spheres including Agriculture, Public welfare, research and development and live scientific instrument demonstration for school children. Growing Seed also runs a monthly national level peer-reviewed magazine on Agriculture and allied sciences named- AGRIALLIS- Science for Agriculture and Allied Sciences. Anweshan- which is Growing Seeds most recent initiative which focuses on the induction of school students, including the primary segment to basics of science and scientific instruments in rural areas.

Growing Seed Research: GS Research is the research and development wing of Growing seed organization which focuses on location-specific customized research solutions for agricultural, environmental and social sciences. The research philosophy significantly differs from the commonly practised blanket research where a solution to everything, everywhere, and everybody is practised. The GS research focuses on a particular problem faced by a particular area or community and tries to solve the problem in the area itself with indigenous and available resource management. Even though it is a newly established wing, it has started gaining its popularity due to innovative and realistic research works. Agriculture and rural development are the prime focus area of Growing Seed research.
Anweshan: Anweshan is the most recent initiative of the Growing Seed organization which has started in January of 2020. The idea behind Anweshan is to introduce children of the far-flung remote areas to science and its tools which will help them to be fascinated toward science which will finally result in a society with scientific temperament.
