For the first time since its establishment in 2008, the massive Svalbard Seed Vault on the Spitsbergen Island in Norway will contain seeds for forest trees, according to a recent article in Science Daily. Conserving the genetic resources of forest trees is part of the mandate of the Natural Resources Institute, Finland.
The first samples of forest tree seeds to be stored in the vault are spruce and pine, which are the most important species of tree in Nordic forestry. The three-fold purpose for storing the seeds is backup storage in case of unlikely threats, long-term monitoring of genetic variation in natural forests and monitoring of the changes in genetic diversity occurring as a side product of tree breeding.
Officials from SurvivalSeeds4Patriots 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. The company recommends that people use only open-pollinated, non-hybrid, 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,” said 4Patriots LLC 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 and three-month emergency food kits.
Patriot Headquarters publishes articles, videos and news to help patriots become more self-reliant and independent from government and big business.
