Heirloom Organics is aimed at helping everyone have a back up safety vault of seeds. In case of a natural disaster, where all our crops are destroyed, or a worsen of the economy, where there is no more food in grocery stores, this would be a smart idea. The idea is green because you don’t have the pesticides of normal produce we see in our stores. The benefits of growing your own food outweighs the negatives. Growing plants helps you relax, and brings a sense of responsibility. Growing your own food also can save you alot of money. In my backyard I currently have strawberries, tomatoes, chives, garlic, onions, radishes and cilantro. Its not much, but it saves me about $10 at the grocery store already! Lets say I buy veggies two times a month on average, that would save me $20 a month or $240 a year!! That is money well saved! You can save your seed vault for whenevr your ready for it, and it stores enough for a whole acre of growing food. I definetly recommend checking this out!
Helping Japan. March 22, 2011
As you may already know, Japan has suffered a huge crisis. The 9.0 Earthquake that hit last week, caused a huge tsunami to wipe out many coastal cities. As if that wasn’t bad enough, a nuclear power plant lost power and started to leak nuclear radiation. The death toll is at 10,000 and rising, and there is over 15,000 people still missing. Many countries have already sent support and search dogs to help the rescue, but every donation can help. Here is the link for the red cross, which is definetely the most promising source to donate to. Even if it is only a dollar, there are billions in the United States alone to help. A dollar from each person would equal to alot of money!
There are still earthquakes happening every hour or so in Japan. To see the list thanks to the USGS, I have put it here in this link. Pray for Japan to have a quick a safe recovery. Click the red cross to donate!
