Learn everything you need to know in order to collect and save survival seeds.

Most people have less than a week's supply of food in their home. A select few are more prepared and have a six month to one year supply of food, but even they aren't prepared to survive long-term without food. If you only have food on hand, but no way of growing food, you're woefully unprepared to survive a long-term food shortage. 

Learning to grow and save heirloom seeds could be the difference between having food and starving to death in a long-term survival situation. 

There are a number of looming threats to the global food supply and food could be in short demand in the near future. Would you be prepared if you woke up tomorrow and store shelves were empty? How long would you be able to live without easy access to food? A week? A month? Years? Survival seeds allow you to survive indefinitely by giving you the ability to grow and collect seeds from your own produce. 

Survival Seeds: The Emergency Heirloom Seed Saving Guide covers the following topics:
What survival seeds are and why you need to start saving seeds now.
Real threats to the global food supply and how they will impact our lives if a solution isn't found soon.
Why saving heirloom seeds is important to preserving our heritage and our food supply's genetic diversity.
Emergency seed vaults: You've probably seen them for sale online. Are they a good deal or a waste of time?
Open-pollinated and Heirloom seeds vs. seeds from hybrid plants: Why you should never use hybrid seeds for seed saving.
Organic seeds and why they're important.
Practice makes perfect: Why learning the ropes ahead of time is absolutely critical to survival.
How to test the drought-tolerance of the plants in your survival garden in advance.
Seed viability and germination (includes a quick and easy method of testing the germination rate of your seeds).
Why you need to save a variety of seeds, including seeds that aren't native to your area.
What cover crops are and why they're important.
Choosing a location for your survival garden.
How much produce will you need for your family?
Using succession planting to increase the yield of your land.

When A Traditional Candidate Meets The iCandidate, the Nation Will Never Be the Same!
"We're going to run the first virtual front porch campaign."
All Michael Bennit wants to do is be the best high school teacher he can be. However, when he loses a bet to his over-achieving class of history students, he finds himself in unfamiliar territory: a candidate running for a seat in the U.S. House of Representatives.

With no money, and only his students to run his campaign, Michael sets a plan in motion to be the country’s first virtual candidate. Leveraging the potential of social media, his campaign becomes the epicenter of national attention and a target for a desperate incumbent fanatical about hanging onto power - at any cost.

The iCandidate follows the plight of four people caught in the firestorm of mass media, social media, and dirty politics. In the end, lives will be changed and the political landscape of the country forever altered, but will the lesson of it all be lost?

˃˃˃ An Intelligent and Refreshing Read For All Ages
The story is written from the perspectives of four different characters, giving the reader a much richer personal connection to the characters.

˃˃˃ More Than Just a Political Novel
The iCandidate is more than just another political novel. As a teacher and a soldier, the protagonist brings a lot to the table in this page turner. Although the book is set against the backdrop of a political campaign, the themes it explores about social media and society, education in America, and how we react to a pervasive media culture all add to the spice of the novel.

˃˃˃ A Glimpse Into the Future!
Social media is everywhere today! It is a powerful tool, but are we too trusting of it? This must read book examines that question in a fun and entertaining way.
