Survival Seeds: The Emergency Heirloom Seed Saving Guide

Learn everything you need to know in order to collect and save survival seeds.

Most people have less than a week’s supply of food in their home. A select few are more prepared and have a six month to one year supply of food, but even they aren’t prepared to survive long-term without food. If you only have food on hand, but no way of growing food, you’re woefully unprepared to survive a long-term food shortage.

Learning to grow and save heirloom seeds could be the difference between having food and starving to death in a long-term survival situation.

There are a number of looming threats to the global food supply and food could be in short demand in the near future. Would you be prepared if you woke up tomorrow and store shelves were empty? How long would you be able to live without easy access to food? A week? A month? Years? Survival seeds allow you to survive indefinitely by giving you the ability to grow and collect seeds from your own produce.
