Food. Most of us know that we have animals that, every year, are placed on an Endangered List. But did you know that there is a list of foods that are indanger of extinction as well?
If you're wondering why there is a new energy surrounding Heirloom Seeds/foods it's because we are losing a large amount of food to science. Genetic Modification (GMO) is everywhere. You're probably not aware that 90% of fresh produce is scientifcally tampered with to deliver a product of perfect shape, color & longevity. Moreoever, you can't save that seed from the squash you just purchased from the big box store because its completely sterile. A major GMO company boasts "NO SEED WILL BE SOWN THAT WE DON'T OWN". They are developing new "Franken-foods" faster than you can digest that store bought salad. Its no wonder that Americans suffer from illneses like depression to diabetes. Nothing we eat anymore has much nutritional value. I invite you to take pause and think about where your family's food is coming from. Dont you think its time to SAVE OUR SEED AND FEED OUR FUTURE?
A rose is a rose and a seed is a seed right? Not necessarily....Heirloom Seeds are typically defined as being more than 50 yrs old & having a story associated with them. They have been handed down from generation to generation and produce a plant identical to the parent. This seed bears fruits, vegetables and flowers unmatched by the common varieties found today.
