Seed libraries have been sprouting up in numerous areas of the country the past few years, and now one is scheduled to be established in Massachusetts. SurvivalSeeds4Patriots, producer of the Liberty Seed Vault, commends the usage of heirloom seeds in home gardens.
May 08, 2015 /prREACH/ -- As reported by MassLive.com, the Easthampton, Mass., city library will soon contain a seed library. Often housed in actual libraries, seed libraries are places where borrowers can take seeds to plant in their gardens and then return some of the seeds from their harvest for other borrowers to use.
SurvivalSeeds4Patriots applauds the growth of these seed libraries, recommending that people make sure they use only open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified seeds in their gardens.
Providing a path to independence and self-sufficiency, SurvivalSeeds4Patriots offers the Liberty Seed Vault. The air-tight metal storage container includes more than 5,400 heirloom seeds from 21 varieties of vegetables including broccoli, spinach, carrots, squash, corn, tomatoes, onions, beets and zucchini. Each order is accompanied by four guides and a 100 percent money-back guarantee.
After growing and enjoying these nutritious vegetables, gardeners can use the seeds from the harvest for next year’s crops, so they never have to buy seeds again. The company says that this strategy provides additional benefits because it allows people to be less affected by food shortages and increasing food prices.
Unfortunately, not everyone is able to grow a garden. But after storms such as Katrina and Sandy, as well as many other weather events, many people have learned the hard way that having a stockpile of emergency food is a must.
Food4Patriots, the supplier of emergency food suitable for long-term storage, survival and emergency preparedness, includes 72-hour, four-week, three-month and one-year emergency food kits. All of the food in Food4Patriots’ kits can be prepared in less than 20 minutes and requires nothing more than boiling water. It is kept in easy-to-store Mylar pouches, which keep out air, moisture and light. The food has a shelf life of 25 years.
Among the food choices are chicken noodle soup, potato cheddar soup, broccoli and cheese soup, enchilada soup, corn chowder, granola, oatmeal, rice, mashed potatoes, au gratin potatoes, cheddar pasta, stew, chicken Alfredo, beef stroganoff, mixed fruit blend and chocolate pudding.
