GIVEAWAY: Heirloom Survival Seed Vault


Could you feed your family from your garden if you had to? What if you simply decided you wanted to?

This emergency survival seed vault was created to serve that very purpose.


This seed bank contains 20 varieties of easy-to-grow heirloom vegetable seeds, and enough seeds to create a garden about a half-acre to an acre in size, depending on your gardening method. They are packaged in jumbo-sized triple-layered foil packets with built in zip-locks, so they are waterproof, and can be resealed once opened.

All seeds in the Heirloom Survival Seed Vault are heirloom varieties that are open-pollinated and 100% Non-GMO. The seeds may be planted, harvested, and replanted endlessly. Detailed planting, harvesting, and seed saving instructions are included.

  • I love it all. We do all non-GMO organic and it’s the most wonderful thing to walk by a plant and grab a leaf and just eat it right off the plant, or a snow pea, and never have to worry about pesticides or the wrong DNA or anything like that. I love to ‘graze” in my garden and I’m not even a vegetarian!

  • Can I say I’d love to try all of them?? Well, except the beets. Beefsteak tomatoes, cucumber, romaine lettuce….now I’m getting hungry!

  • would love to try all of these but especially the Beefsteak Tomato, Scarlet Nantes Carrot, and Lincoln Shell Pea

  • beefsteak potatoes, crimson sweet watermelon, dark red beet, Golden Acre cabbage, Scarlet Nantes carrot.

  • We are trying to start a garden and this would be great! I can’t decide what I would be most excited to plant…onions wonder pepper, and tomatoes for salsa if I had to choose.

  • What a wonderful giveaway! I’d love to try them all, but the California Wonder Pepper caught my eye – I haven’t heard about the wonder pepper before. 🙂

  • Would love to plant them all because I am not sure that I have tried any of them. Love to eat straight from the garden to the table.

  • I would love any of these! I have, just in the past few years, discovered how much I like gardening and how much better I feel eating whole foods. I am learning how to take care of myself and my loved ones with herbs too. I haven’t had a cold since I started using herbs medicinally and eating whole veggies straight from the garden.

    Any veggie seeds or herb seeds or fruit seeds would be welcome, since they are non-GMO and heirloom varieties, two qualities that are very important to me.

  • I think the Detroit Red beets sound great, but my kids are much more excited about watermelon!

  • I’m most excited about the things we eat the most of: California Wonder Pepper, Scarlet Nantes Carrot, Marketmore Cucumber, Beefsteak Tomato, Waltham Butternut Winter Squash and Black Beauty Zucchini. Even though we are not currently eating corn, the idea of preserving a non-GMO variety is fantastic, so add Golden Bantam Sweet Corn to the list!
