The Absolute Rights newsletter today explains that seed saving is essential for food reproduction, and why breaking dependency upon the food supply system is important. Saving seeds has been done for centuries, the newsletter reveals, with dependency upon someone else for food happening during this past century. As long as man has been on earth they have been hunter - gatherers, explains the newsletter, now people go to work, earn money and go to the grocery store, with many people not even doing that, because they eat at restaurant for all their meals. The Absolute Rights newsletter article today reports that many people who would have to depend upon themselves for food, in a disaster or crisis situation, would not survive.
Seed saving has to be done from heirloom seed varieties, the newsletter adds, which means people cannot collect seeds from plants that are hybrids or that have been genetically modified. When a seed has been genetically modified, or is a hybrid, the Absolute Rights newsletter explains, seeds from those plants will not grow plants like the one they came from. The newsletter reports that this has created a dependency upon the seed suppliers and the government for seed. Heirloom plants have been cultivated for centuries, the newsletter adds in the article, and chosen because they withstand weather extremes, pests, and diseases.
The main thing to remember when saving seeds, the newsletter explains, is that if they remain cool and dry they will last longer. This can be accomplished by sealing them in a glass jar, the newsletter reports, because humidity can eventually seep through plastic. Place the packages inside a glass container, the newsletter advises, then store them in a cool place.
