Yesterday I posted a video on creating your own survival seed vault:
It’s really easy to save seeds long-term with just a refrigerator, some jars with rubber seals, and some silica gel packets.
Alternately, you can save seeds via growing your own in the garden.
We do both.

You’ve probably seen a survival seed collection for sale.
There are great big survival seed vault offers, with everything from sweet corn to beets, all packed in a way to make seeds last longer than you might expect.
However, you can save seeds in the fridge by putting them in mason jars with silica gel packets and they’ll keep for a REALLY long time. You can also save seeds from the garden if you know a few tips and tricks. By growing seeds in the garden, you can save varieties from year to year and never have to buy seeds again.
Or, take advantage of all the spring seed sales right now and get lots of seed packets, then store seed away in your very own mason jar survival seed supply.
We use a combination of both methods, storing seeds and growing seeds and saving seed from the garden.
You can too!
If supply chains go down, you’ll have all you need to grow a survival garden, Doomsday Prepper style! It’s not exactly the Svalbard seed vault, but it’s way better than what most people have.
Thanks for watching!
I was a little disappointed that the doomsday gas mask did not make an appearance in the video! We’re definitely becoming interested in landrace, we’ll have to see if the library might have a copy. Thank you for the awesome information as usual!
