The following article is from OFF THE GRID NEWS. I recommend that you get you HEIRLOOM SEEDS today. And think about relocating OUT OF NORTH AMERICA to a safer and more bio-sustainable location and lifestyle. There will be no sustainable future in North America someday. Think and pray about this and do your research.
It is time for the highly endangered Christians of North America to return to the Amish-type concept of Christian community and self-sustaining independent agricultural communities in today's world. to be preserved from the world's destructive systems. The Amish did what they did in perilous times to survive, and it worked to this very day. They came together as COMMUNITY to stand together! Of course they have problems like the rest of us: they are human and this is normal in today's world. But they are SURVIVORS!
Central and South America are wonderful regions outside North America to relocate to and consider purchasing a farm and forming a community prayerfully and with wisdom and discernment.
Persecution unto martyrdom is coming to North America, communist-style (NEW WORLD ORDER) as I have reported on for many years now. How foolish to sit back on such information (from many other sources as well on the Internet and alternative news sources)and NOT do anything about this, but retreat into a corner and live in dread and fear of the hour of martial law and things to come! DO something...ANYTHING productive in light of what is coming to North America. Refuse to be a victim!
Perhaps we have alot to learn from the AMISH in certain respects...go to this link to understand what I am saying:http://energybulletin.net/node/44899
Isn't it time to find a way to restore the world to normalcy (as God created it in the beginning)and find a way to BANISH FOREVER the pesticides that are destroying health, land, water, lives and our ecosystem? We need to find a peaceful way enabling us to ban their production worldwide. This of course would take a LONG time!
But until this happens, GROW YOUR OWN!-Pamela Rae Schuffert
If you've been to the grocery store lately, then you know just how
much food prices are skyrocketing. In fact, the money that got you
four bags of groceries last year will get you only three bags this
year. And now that gas prices are going up almost daily, food
prices will shoot up even more.
But now there's another, far more ominous reason to
home garden.There's a threat emerging that is so
potentially catastrophic,it could literally mean the
collapse of commercial agriculture.
The honeybees are disappearing. In the past few years, we've
been hearing more and more about something called Colony
Collapse Disorder - it's a fancy way of saying that the honeybees
are dying, and we don't know why. But if the decline isn't reversed,
the honeybee could well go the way of the dinosaur.
If that happens, our industrial farming system will completely
Commercial farming depends on healthy honeybees.
Bees pollinate over 90 different commercial crops.
Without bees, we would not be able to enjoy things
like grilled summer squash, crisp cold cucumbers,
or sweet, delicious melon. Many people take good
food like this for granted
... and now those foods are at grave risk.
Giant farm conglomerates rent bees from commercial
beekeepers to pollinate their hives. The hives are trucked
to one region, released from the hive to pollinate the crops,
and are packed up again and taken to the next region.
But since 2003, more and more often, farmers have been
opening up their hives to find dead bees or, more often, bees
that just don't return to the hive. That means there are fewer
bees to do more work ... which stresses the bee population
For a long time, despite numerous theories, nobody knew
what the real cause was.
But now we know.
"Highly toxic" pesticide causing mass
extermination of honeybees
Late 2010, a brave whistleblower leaked a memo from
secret files at the Environmental Protection Agency. That
memo was a smoking gun. For years, the EPA has known
the true cause of the honeybee extinctions. The culprit is a
chemical pesticide, clothianidin. Here's what the EPA's own
internal memo said:
"Clothianidin's major risk concern is to
non-target insects (that is, honey bees).
Clothianidin is a neonicotinoid
insecticide that is both persistent and
systemic. Acute toxicity studies to honey
bees show that clothianidin is highly toxic
on both a contact and an oral basis.
... Information from standard tests and
field studies ... suggest the potential for
long-term risk to honey bees and other
This pesticide was approved by the EPA, despite warnings
from some of its own best and brightest scientists. And today,
it's used just as much as ever.
If clothianidin were outlawed tomorrow, could the damage
be reversed? We don't know. But we do know this: if the
honeybee population isn't restored to healthy levels - and quickly
- our nation, not to mention the world, could lose over 90
different crop varieties, because they could no longer be
pollinated on a large scale.
Look, you already know all the great reasons to grow
your own food:
risk to commercial agriculture is probably number
one. And here's the thing about a home garden:
Even if the bees completely disappear, you can
still grow the same wide variety of crops you've
Here's why. The areas hardest hit by the bee
epidemic are those vast tracts of land devoted to
industrial monoculture. And that makes perfect sense
because that's where the toxic pesticide clothianidin is
mostly heavily used. The bees that buzz around home
gardens don't seem to be as affected ... at least not yet.
But what if they were? What if your local neighborhood
hive were hit by Colony Collapse Disorder? You'd
still be okay, and here's why. There's a little known
secret about pollination that most home gardeners
You can actually hand pollinate anything a bee can
Giant corporate farms with millions of acres can't
pollinate by hand, of course. It would take an
impossible amount of manpower. But home
gardens? They're small and manageable and
can easily be hand pollinated.
Imagine this. A few short years from now,
you go to the store, and the colorful produce
that once filled the shelves is no longer there.
No beets ... no cabbage ... no cucumbers, onions,
or carrots. No melons, no chard, no tomatoes, or
peppers. No squash or eggplant. They've become a
rare and valuable commodity. (Beans and peas
would be in short supply, too, because although
they're self-pollinating, bees help them produce
But when it comes to vegetables, you're the richest
man in town. Thanks to non-commercial bees that thrive
nearby, or help from the kids with manual pollination,
you've grown a bumper crop of these vanishing
vegetables in your backyard using the heirloom seeds
from your Survival Seed Bank. Can you imagine how
valuable the produce from your own back yard would be?
(In fact, with the heirloom crops you'll produce in your
home garden, you'll have yourself the makings of a nice
little home business.)
That's what makes the Survival Seed Bank such a
wise investment. It includes 22 varieties of heirloom,
non-hybrid seeds - enough to produce a full acre of
nutrient dense food. 12 of those varieties (beets, cabbage,
cucumbers, onions, carrots, melons, chard, tomatoes,
squash, eggplant, and two types of peppers) are
currently endangered by the disappearance of the honeybees.
They could all but vanish from commercial production.
With the Survival Seed Bank, you'll have an unending
supply of seeds. Because these seeds are non-hybrid,
non-GMO seeds, you can save seeds from each harvest
and plant them again the following year. You can't do
that with most commercial hybrid seeds.
Seeds from the Survival Seed Bank are easier to grow
Our seeds have extremely high germination rates, far
above government-required standards. That means you
don't have to overplant just to get an adequate harvest.
And no wasted seed, either. You plant only what you
need, and save the rest.
Plus, each Seed Bank comes with Nitro Starter Solution.
When you soak your seeds in Nitro Starter just before
planting, it gives your seeds a germination and growth
advantage. Every Seed Bank also comes with the e-book
Survival Gardening With Heirlooms. The book gives you
complete, step-by-step instructions for planting,
cultivating, harvesting, and even storing your crops.
This season, we've been able to offer the Survival Seed
Bank at the discounted price of $149. But since we've learned
about the pesticide threat to the honeybees, we're more
determined than ever to get Seed Banks into the hands
of as many gardeners as possible.
Every year sees more and more die-off of the honeybees.
You can ensure you have an unbroken supply chain of the
at-risk crops we mentioned earlier. There's still time to get
a garden in this year and save some seeds to plant next
season. So don't delay! Click here to get your
Survival Seed Bank today!

P.S. Even if you don't plant this year, you can save (or bury) your seed bank for future seasons. In fact, it may be the only way to ensure you have access to these at-risk crops in the coming years!
