Carson City, NV, October 04, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- Home and Garden America will add a new survival seeds pack to their gardening lineup later this year a source close to the Company recently stated. The Company currently offers a 50 Varieties Heirloom Organic Survival Seeds Packet which contains all the vegetables that would be necessary for survival besides corn and beans.
"Most people buy corn and beans in bulk so those were left out of this original pack so that it could be sold as a light weight addition to the bulk packages people normally buy. The Company has decided to add corn and bean varieties along with fruit and herbs to make this new survival seeds package more self-sufficient. They still advise additional bulk purchases of corn and beans to bolster this pack but it's now more rounded than the previous package," the source stated.
The recent spike in interest in survival readiness has spawned an interest in survival seeds that many claim is akin to ancient Joseph of the Bible providing stores of grain which saved Egypt from starvation during an ensuing famine. Seeds have always been a valuable commodity but recent controversies about the newer genetically modified organisms has added to the interest in non gmo, heirloom seeds.
Many people feel that it's good practice to store food for emergency use during times of upheaval and if the disaster lasts for a prolonged period, the storing of seeds for planting a crisis garden is also good practice. Seeds don't have to be planted to be a source of nourishment, they can be sprouted in just a few days, normally, and will provide a highly nutritious diet.
