The Lock Box is recommended for up to four adults wishing to supplement their diet with fresh, nutritious, truly organic produce.
Enough seed is provided for a year-round garden for four 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 Safe. The larger bank will provide a greater cushion in the event of a crop failure.
The Lock Box comes with a laminated Texas Ready Mittleider Gardening Chart and a free copy of The Vegetable Gardener’s Bible. This book provides detailed instructions on how to cultivate each variety in your bank (light, water and soil requirements; when and how to plant, etc.). 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 varieties included in this Liberty Seed Bank are suitable for all USDA Growing Zones and should perform well in your area. Click here to see a list of varieties you may expect to find in your bank.
