Something has been taking place that most are unaware of.
People go about their normal routine and take for granted that there always will be plenty of food lining the grocery store shelves whenever they walk through the doors.
What would you do if you walked into the store one day, only to find that there was nothing on the shelves?
What if there were a national disaster, natural disaster, or food shortage, how would you feed your family?
But why would these big companies be so interested in just seeds?
I believe along with many that they are some of the largest international companies -- such as Monsanto, DuPont, and Dow. But why would these big companies be so interested in just seeds?
Hmmmm, lets see. Food and medicine are big business. So if you controlled the raw materials that supply those big industries, you would be in a position of great power... and even greater profit.
Think back. Our grandparents (I am 62 years young) saved their own seed year to year.
They traded seeds with their friends and neighbors, and passed on seeds to their children. In doing so, they bred vegetable varieties that were tailor-made for their local climates. They maintained a healthy level of genetic diversity in their food supply.
Sadly, families stopped saving seeds over the last 100 years or so, and most of those old "heirloom" varieties of fruits and vegetables have already been lost.
But wait...It's not too late!
The last few years, gardeners have recognized that this was a huge mistake!
Now many of us are beginning to save our own seeds in an effort to rescue the remaining heirloom varieties and protect our own food supply.
As a gardener, you can protect yourself from food shortage - start saving your own seeds.
Saving seeds can be an easy way for you to personally take part in the future of our food security.
Once you start saving...future seeds are free!
Saving seeds from the plants that have performed best in your garden, you are selecting the plants that grow best suited to your climate and your soil. When doing this for several years in a row, you end up with a plant that is specifically adapted to your local conditions.
