The project SEED focuses on the exploration of the dust growth process outside the circumstellar accretion disk surrounding and feeding the young stellar object in the formation process, continuously providing a seed population of grown grains for further processing within the accretion disk. In this contribution, we describe the newest results of the project including spatial variation of the grain population in the cores, the relation of growth and core properties, and the impact of turbulence on the growth process.
