Heirloom Seeds: Part One – Their Importance Today

This is the first in a progression of online journals we will be delivering all through 2015 to clarify how developing natural create from treasure seeds won’t just deliver a more beneficial nourishment trim, yet in addition help ensure the beleaguered pollinators (birds, honey bees, and butterflies) that permit fruiting trees, berry vines, and vegetables to endure edits in any case.

Everywhere throughout the world, individuals are rediscovering the advantages of developing their own particular nourishment. Some of you have been doing this as long as I have (since the 1970s). Nowadays, most real seed organizations just offer hereditarily changed (GMO) seed, created to endure herbicide and pesticide applications. On business cultivates, this empowers agriculturists to develop their products and splash herbicides and pesticides straightforwardly onto the plants. The subsequent deliver contains what I consider “risky” measures of these chemicals, affirmed by the various examinations that have built up coordinate connections between a few tumors and these exceptionally same chemicals. Consequently, if for no other, I eat naturally developed nourishments over processing plant cultivated food.

What could be more vital than the nature of food we eat? We’ve all observed the messages that naturally developed nourishment is better for us, a benefit for which we are regularly made a request to pay additional. However hundred years back, all food was developed naturally and the synthetic manure industry of today was non-existent. In those days, pesticides and herbicides weren’t utilized to “help” agriculturists and terrace nursery workers in their endeavor to develop progressively and “better” products. At the point when these man-made added substances were first presented their impact on our bodies wasn’t considered. Today, after much logical examination, we’ve returned around to the straightforward conclusion that more beneficial foods break even with more advantageous bodies. DripWorks believes that natural create, developed from old world legacy seed, gives that more beneficial option, for us, for our garden, and for the world in which we live.

The legacy seed organization that DripWorks has collaborated with is Baker Creek Seed Company (rareseeds.com) of Mansfield, Missouri, backer of the annual National Heirloom Exposition in Santa Rosa, California (you may have seen our corner there).
