The Safe is recommended for up to six adults wishing to supplement their diet with fresh, nutritious, truly organic produce.
Enough seed is provided for a year-round garden for half a dozen adult units, along with an excess to hold in reserve in case a particular crop does not do well. (Figure a small child or elderly person as half an adult unit; a teenage boy might be one and a half units.) Families looking at their seed bank as a food safety net in the event of an economic collapse or societal disruption should purchase a Vault. The larger bank will provide a more substantial cushion in the event of a crop failure.
The Safe comes with a laminated Texas Ready Mittleider Gardening Chart and free copies of The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible and The Mittleider Gardening Course. These books provide detailed instructions on how to cultivate each variety in your bank (light, water and soil requirements; when and how to plant, etc.) and how to plan, construct and maintain your raised bed gardens. The other books offered on our website are also strongly recommended for those wishing to maximize their harvest and pursue a lifestyle of true self-sustainability.
The Safe also comes with 2 ten oz Texas Ready/Mittleider Trace Element Nutrient Packs.
