Minnesota Governor Mark Dayton stepped in to exempt the Duluth library from a state agriculture law in order to allow the city’s seed-lending library to continue. SurvivalSeeds4Patriots commends the decision.
Jun 10, 2015 /prREACH/ -- After being told by the Minnesota Department of Agriculture that it was violating laws regarding the testing and labeling of seeds before they are distributed, Duluth Public Library officials were concerned that their seed-lending program had been uprooted only a year after being planted.
But according to Minnesota Public Radio News, Governor Mark Dayton has signed a bill exempting the program from state agriculture laws. The program has lent bean, tomato, pepper and other seeds to gardeners and asked them to return some of the seeds they harvested in the fall.
Seed libraries have been sprouting up in numerous areas of the country the past few years. 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. Officials from the company 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.
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,” said 4Patriots Partner Allen Baler. “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, three-month and one-year emergency food kits.
