Long-Term Seed Storage
Heirloom Organics uses the VAULT Method of seed preparation for long term storage, supplying up to twice the shelf-life of “normal” seeds. Then we hermetically seal them for maximum “viability” (germination rate) over the longest possible period of time. The USDA National Seed Storage Lab first pioneered these methods. Now we are able to use these methods for your serious home storage of seeds. Then your seeds are secured in re-sealable containers so you can use some now & store the rest!

Why use Non-Hybrid Seeds?

Nutritional Integrity
Many vegetables today lack nutrition from over-hybridization. Recent tests are showing that many of the vegetables, grains and other produce you buy, INCLUDING ORGANIC PRODUCE, are nutrient-deficient. If you want to truly be in charge of your nutritional intake, you must home garden. If you want the higher nutrition of original varieties you must use non-hybrids.

Economic security and independence
Growing your own food, now, is becoming an economic necessity for many. Even those in cities are growing food on their balconies and rooftops and in suburban backyards. 2011 will likely become known as the year America returns to home gardening (see Victory Gardens of WWII) as a way of defending against the hostile adversary of an economic downturn!

Security of Food Supply
Securing the nation’s food supply against the “invasion” of GM (genetically modified) and over-hybridization of foods is coming down to the backyard garden. Yours and ours. It is our patriotic duty to defend the genetic integrity of our food supply by growing, saving seeds and sharing original varieties.

World Food Supply

Put simply, the future of the world's food supply rests in non-hybrid seeds. The push toward hybridization and GM foods is becoming irreversible. Hybrid food sources are patented and "owned" by the patent-holders. It is, in fact, a form of patent-infringement to attempt to collect and plant seeds from many hybrid varieties.


Cross-Pollination

With the advancement of genetically modified plant varieties, the danger of cross-pollination with organic and non-hybrid varieties is not only possible, it is happening as you read this. If it is possible for GM vegetables, grains and legumes to cross-pollinate with organic and non-hybrid varieties, then it’s possible for the food system to be altered uncontrollably and irreversibly.

What We Can Do
Plant gardens now and store for the future. Plant as many original variety vegetables, fruits and grains as possible right now and store as many seeds as you can comfortably afford for your own protection, the protection of your family, neighbors, community. So, right now, you can BUY SEEDS IN OUR SEED STORE or GROW SEEDS USING OUR EXTENSIVE ONLINE GROWING GUIDE.

Drying and Storing Herbs for Cooking

Knowing what to do with an overabundance of unused herbs is a dilemma many of us encounter. Dealing with an extra supply of herbs on our hands does not only occur as we begin to hang up our gardening hat towards the end of the season. Read More >>
