Some believe that one of the best investments to currently make is in an emergency seed bank.
With everything that is going on with the global economy and food system, it’s hard to argue.
Yes, it is important to have the canned goods and non-perishables, but what happens when they run out and the supermarket shelves are dry?
That’s where having an emergency seed bank helps out. I’m not getting all sensationalistic and saying it’s going to happen today or in the near future, but like any other emergency kit, it’s best to be prepared.
How to use your emergency seed bank
There are two ways that you can use your bank:
- Keeping it in storage for emergencies. One of the best places to store them is in the freezer.
- Start your garden. This way you can start to grow your food and build up the seed bank by saving your seeds.
