    I personally consider the following items essential for self-sustainability.

    1. Vitamins and Minerals @ .
    They have really reasonable prices and I order a lot of Vitamin D3. Vitamin D will help us avoid the flu as it improves the immune system.

    2. Inexpensive Rare Heirloom vegetable seeds
    Non GMO and Hybrid seeds are full of nutrition... GMO and Hybrid are not and I've read some studies how GMO also alters the blood of those eating those food. Organic will become a very highly prized item to have and to eat.

    6,000 All-Natural, Non-GMO, Non-Hybrid, Organic, Rare Heritage Vegetable Seeds. That's 4 Pounds! And they come inside a TIME CAPSULE. I probably should have bought several of these.

    We are on a catchment system but many get water with flouride or choline in it with is is not good for anyone's body. All of our drinking water is filtered.

    Elements will remove harmful pathogenic bacteria such as E-coli, Cholera Salmonella Typhi, Giardia and Cryptosporidium. The filters remove and reduce unwanted chemicals such as Chlorine, lead, rust, sediment, pesticides, herbicides, organic solvents, VOC’s, SOC’s, Trihalomethanes and foul tastes and odors. The durable and efficient Black Berkey elements can be cleaned and re-cleaned (up to 100 times or more) as needed with a soft brush or Scotch-Brite pad.

    A reSource transmedial culture Berlin Project

    An original project by Ayumi Matsuzaka the artist holding this site

    Game rules
    You will use a handkerchief for sneezing and put it in your pocket everyday.
    You will carry the beans in your pocket together with your handkerchief until the beans germinate.
    You understand the beans may have a secret energy from which to germinate.
    You will promise to meet me to let me know about how the beans develop every two weeks.

    My intension was to investigate various relationship between beans-holders and myself as an artist.
    The standpoint and values of the artistic interventions can change with each relationship.

    Basic questions were:
    How do people keep a promise between each other?
    How carefully do people grant a person's request?
    How much detail do people keep in mind? And for how long?
    When and how do people break a promise?
    How do people deceive and tell lies?
    How often do people forget or ignore insignificant things?
    How angry can people get about insignificant things?

    These questions were not explained to the 57 bean-holders in advance.
    I did not want to initiate a debate with them. Instead, the relationship
    with each of them developed differently depending upon the person.

    A beans meeting was held three months after the project started.
    This was the first time bean-holders met each other and shared
    their individual bean-experiences.
