survival_seeds2Survival seeds are an absolute must have no matter which kind of preserved foods you have stored, froze, freeze dried or canned! Sooner or later all of these food reserves will run out and if you don’t plan on time, you could be facing the end of your food reserves with nothing to replace them.
Having heirloom and open pollinated vegetable seeds is the only long term food storage program for you and your family!

Even if you, or some members of your family are not big vegetable eaters, in times when other food supply ran out or become extremely rare, fresh vegetables will have new appeal.

If you purchase a good supply of heirloom garden seeds that make most survival seed banks, you will have everything you need to feed yourself and your family for life. But you need be careful to buy open pollinated non-hybrid or heirloom seeds!

Survival Seeds and Survival Seed Banks
