"Heritage Wheat Conservancy"

a sampling of some of the seeds available via Growseed.org includes:

Emmer: (T. dicoccon) wheat of Ancient Egypt, the original matzah, and in Biblical Israel. Emmer was found in the Jericho cave where Bar Kokhba rebels hid from the Romans in 135 CE.

Crimean Turkey Red: delicious, winter-hardy hard-red wheat grown, excellent for dark European peasant breads, originally from Crimea on the Black Sea

Hourani Biblical: Spring Durum, discovered in the Masada Fortress by Yigal Yadin, translator of the Dead Sea Scroll, stored 2,000 years ago by King Herod. This is the wheat eaten by ancient Israel. but today is almost extinct. Collected by Nikolai Vavilov in 1926.

(this is a small sample, all the wheats listed there are incredible, take a look at the site)

they are OUT OF STOCK on (i think) all the seeds listed there at the site, because of the high-demand, but if you are drawn to mega-crunchy Tikkun-Olam (as are we) then i recommend getting in touch with Eli from the website and seeing when you can get your hands on some of the seed....

to be able to plant even small patches of these *ancient* grains in a little garden would be--- wow.

Well hopefully someone is planting them and doing something to preserve them?
I think it'd be great to try something with Ancient Egyptian/Nar Kokhba rebels grain or Masada fortress grain XD

Especially if we can make BEER from it eh
