The Vault is recommended for up to twelve adults wishing to supplement their diet with fresh, nutritious, truly organic produce.
Enough seed is provided for a year-round garden for 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 Treasury. The larger bank will provide a more substantial cushion in the event of a crop failure.
The Vault comes with a laminated Texas Ready Mittleider Gardening Chart and copies of The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible, The Mittleider Gardening Course and Seed to Seed. These books provide just about everything you’ll need to know to turn your backyard into a veritable food factory. You'll learn how to maximize your harvest and properly save your seed for the next growing season. Diligently follow the techniques and recommendations in these training manuals and you’ll be well on your way to living a lifestyle of true self-sustainability!
The Vault also comes with two 20 oz Texas Ready/Mittleider Trace Element Nutrient Packs.
Persons wishing to lay up a store of “seed money” for barter should consider either this bank or the Treasury.
