When a major crisis strikes, there will be a great need to grow food if your bug out group is to survive and flourish. There will be many problems that must be worked out because the bug out plan is only a guide, and it may need to change based on necessity.
Protecting new garden plots and harvest storage areas literally means the difference between life and death for the group.
Start Off with the Right Seeds
There are three types of seeds that can be purchased; but only one is best for long term survival. Make sure that you know the differences and also that you know exactly what you are buying.
A Genetically Modified Organism is an organism whose genetic material has been altered by using genetic engineering techniques. GMO seeds may include genes from fish, herbicide resistant proteins, and other chemicals instead of DNA from a natural plant.
Changes to non-GMO crops can be made by accidental cross pollination with GMO variants. These seeds are not good for survival gardening because there is no telling whether the seeds will be viable from generation to generation. Even if plants are produced, the food from them may be poisonous because of unstable DNA in the organism.
Heirloom seeds come from a plant that has been passed from generation to generation without change. Many Heirloom seeds have been grown, saved, and passed down for over 100 years.
