The Treasury is recommended for thirty adults wishing to supplement their diet with fresh, nutritious, truly organic produce.
Enough seed is provided for a year-round garden for at least thirty 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.) Communal groups looking at their seed bank as a food safety net in the event of an economic collapse or societal disruption should consider purchasing an additional bank. This will provide a more substantial cushion in the event of a crop failure.
The Treasury comes with a laminated Texas Ready Mittleider Gardening Chart; copies of The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible, The Mittleider Gardening Course, Seed to Seed, The Backyard Homestead and The Complete Book of Home Preserving; and ten 10 oz Texas Ready/Mittleider Trace Element Nutrient Packs.
