Heirloom, by Kim Blair


Heirloom
(12"x9" oil on canvas)

While researching heirloom iris I came upon information regarding the Svalbard Global Seed Vault.

I thought I had landed on a site for a sci-fi movie, but instead realized it was a real place located deep inside a mountain on a remote island between Norway and the North Pole.   It is a unique storage facility housing the world's largest collection of crop diversity... for the future... just in case we need to reboot agriculture.

If you are at all interested in gardening this site is well worth taking a look at!  It feels so futuristic and yet it is a real facility. 

Good thing someone is planning ahead!
