Inner-city children and adults are learning how to start and tend to gardens thanks to the growing urban farm movement. SurvivalSeeds4Patriots applauds this trend and suggests gardeners stick with open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified seeds.
Aug 14, 2015 /prREACH/ -- The urban farm movement is sprouting. According to the Philadelphia Inquirer, an overgrown and forsaken parcel of land near the Ruth L. Bennett Homes in Chester, Pa., has been transformed into a one-acre farm where people in the community can plant, nurture and harvest their plants.
SurvivalSeeds4Patriots officials commend the Chester Housing Authority and volunteers for stepping up to create a space where children and adults are learning together how to plant seeds and tend to a garden.
There are 70 raised garden beds on the Chester property featuring more than 20 different crops, from cucumbers to kale to sweet potatoes. More than 150 blueberry bushes line the grounds, with one greenhouse standing and another in the works. Children and adults are learning together how to start and tend to a garden.
Officials from SurvivalSeeds4Patriots, who strongly suggest that homeowners use only open-pollinated, non-hybrid, non-genetically modified seeds in their gardens, remind people they are free to have their own stockpile of non-GMO vegetable seeds to use for planting, growing, harvesting, replanting and storing for the future.
Genetically modified food has been proven to leave materials behind in humans who consume them that can possibly cause long-term problems. As an example, genes inserted into genetically modified soy can transfer into the DNA of bacteria living inside the body, and the toxin insecticide produced by genetically modified corn was found in the blood of pregnant women and their unborn fetuses.
“There is still just so much people don’t know about the long-term effects of genetically modified seeds and crops,” said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. “It’s scary what a high percentage of GMO crops now fill the landscape in the U.S., and people who are concerned about that would do well to stockpile non-GMO seeds.”
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,” Baler said. “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 extreme 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, offers a product line that includes 72-hour, four-week and three-month emergency food kits.
