The Ark Institute's Survival Seed Package

The Survival Seed Package contains enough seed to feed a family of four all of the vegetables, fresh and canned, frozen or dried, for a full year if grown well. You will not have to plant all of your seed. You can save up to half of it as a back-up for next year in case of seed shortages or crop failures. In addition, you will receive both grain corn and wheat for flours (multiply wheat this year) as well as a couple of herbs. Since all of the seed is non-hybrid, seed harvested from your garden vegetables CAN be saved for next year and future years' crops. This Package will literally provide you with the foundation of a lifetime food supply for your family if grown and managed wisely.

Solar Cooks

So, you've got a solar cooker and are looking for some great solar recipes. Here's where to go: recipes, links, solar cooker events, and more.

The Aprotech Rocket Stove


  • The combustion chamber is insulated in order to keep the fire hot and to burn the wood more completely, thereby reducing smoke which is uncombusted fuel.

  • Rocket Stoves are low mass, meaning the stove robs less heat from the pot.

  • An insulated chimney creates a very strong draft which helps the wood burn more fiercely. The wood is burned at the tips and is shoved in towards the fire which controls the rate of burn and reduces smoke.

  • Since the Rocket Stove operates at very high temperatures, there is very little smoke and you cook right over the chimney!
