I was watching a documentary about cryogenics, and they came to a section where they showed a seed bank in Ft. Collins Colorado.

My jaw almost dropped when the guy at the seed bank claimed they had 1 billion frozen seeds in a 5 acre underground bunker. Whaaaa?

I've lived in CO all my life, and even have friends who live in Ft. Collins, and I have been there many times.

I had no clue! I've known about the Doomsday Seed vault in Svalbard, Norway. And the documentary spoke about that. But the guy in Ft. Fun (Collins), called their vault an Ark, or Doomsday Vault.

So I checked out their website. Guess what? It's run by the US government, the US Dept of Agriculture, to be exact.

The name of the place is NCGRP, or National Center for Genetic Resources Preservation.

Not only do they have seeds, they have plants, and even animals!



Gotta love the half sheared Ram.

Isn't it neat that this is located very close to DIA, where they can come out from underground after 20 yrs and start farming?

If they are building these things, that will survive through the worst natural and manmade disasters, they must plan on some surviving, meaning they are preparing underground survival bases.

It's an insurance plan for when the poop hits the fan. TPTB know the planet
is being stressed and in all likelihood will shake us off like fleas. They are
just trying to be prepared. Hell why not?!
Where is your food supply?!

Good find OP, its great when information surfaces just from someone being curious. This is what ATS is all about.

Notice the address. 11:11 Mason St.

Coincedence? I think not. 22 is the secret number.

Hahahah.... another confirmation some nasty sh*t is headed our way people... All we can do is prepare the best we can... No point in acquiring a basement filled with food... what we need most when SHTF is gasoline and a survival guide (specifically one dealing with edible plants if you ask me)

For the record:
I am not disagreeing with you. Being prepared is our nature.
Everything is so compartmentalized that I doubt the people
in charge of these food banks know of any doomsday plan.
They are just trying to preserve some seeds.

The 1111 Address is a little weird,

But so are talking orangutans!

This is the kind of crap that always puts a small knot it my stomach.
Because while ATS espouses various fun conspiracy theories and many doomsday threads, in the background there is the ever lingering presence of a black reality.

This “thing” that they are doing is an insurance policy of course.
I suppose that great day when I’m awakened by thunder claps and a burning sky along with fire and brimstone smoldering around me my last thought will be.. Those Bastards, new and they didn’t tell me!

The question I currently ask my self is , “What did they know?” The burden of knowledge of course in this respect is fully on my shoulders alone as I will foolishly continue to dismiss multiple doomsday threads here on ATS.


Great Big S and F

I'm in my second year of gardening, and we built a small greenhouse this year with our first time homebuyer tax credit.

You can bet that I will be storing seeds this year. I've planted every kind of vegetable and fruit that I can get to grow.

We have 50 jugs of water in empty clorox bottles. The remnant bleach preserves the water.

But my most powerful survival tool, in my opinion, is my faith. I'm ready to die any time, if the Lord sees fit to take me. Otherwise, I'm going to prepare like never before.

Wheat, or grains, is my next challenge.

Well at least you know you have a place close by that you can scramble to incase of a major disaster.

If I had a place like that near me then you can guarantee I would find a way in in the event I needed to.


open the damn door!

Yeah, that'd be great, except they showed the guy going opening this huge vault door, with a combination lock on it. No one is getting in there, without the combo. Maybe the emergency broadcast will give out the combo?

Maybe a gun to the guys head would help him cooperate


You should offer your services as a volunteer in the meantime


You are probably right tho, places like that which can withstand many natural disasters would not be the easiest of places to gain access to


edit to add: i doubt an emergency broadcast would give out the combo, the place would be overrun

Yeah, these places are not for the common useless eater. These places are designed for the elite, and the connected, because they can afford to build, stock and maintain these bunkers, right under the taxpayers noses. I'd bet 95% of the people in Ft Collins don't even know this is there. I'll have to check with my friends.

This plan is to ensure that man/womankind will again flourish on this planet, TPTB know what is going to happen, and they are prepared for it, by storing certain things, and building for themselves great underground bunkers with nuclear powered life support and all service for the Rich Elite for up to 4 years. No, Bunky, you are not invited.

Soooo, it’s a little off topic but does anyone know how someone of nobility plans to off us?

I feel a little nauseated or perhaps invigorated who knows, maybe I had to much coffee, whatever the case I’m starting to REALLY believe something is known and that no one is telling us.

I mean even if the governments of the world thought, “Look Gentlemen we just don’t know if this whole 2012 thing is for real or not, so it’s better to be safe than sorry.”
That kind of thing at least gives me some insight into the ohm so twisted logic of TPTB.

COME ON ROCKEFELLER,… A LITTLE HELP HERE, ROTHSCHILD, ….ASTOR,… ANYONE??

WHAT?!? But I had it all planned out!
I was going to get the top bunk and after we played twister we would make Smores on the stove!

Well that’s just great, So much for the tickle fight and pajama party.

The ironic thing is the "Vault" will be locked to any global holocaust survivors. Assuming technology being 100 years behind at that point, how would the survivors open the damned door?

Like a Cockroach.

This is the new philosophy of myself starting now.

Those who survive the days of fire and whatever it will be are those who don’t just survive a hard time they THRIVE on it. TPTB may be 100 years ahead at that point but the survivors are a 1000 X genetically superior and 1000 x harder to kill.

The progeny of the days of fire are those who will dine on the cold blooded bodies of the worlds former elite. Bon apatite people, after too long meats back on the menu!

They're already doing it. It's just like a good Shakespeare novel, where the unsuspecting character is slowly poisoned.

Fluoride, Chemtrails, prescription drugs that cause more side effects than the original ailment, tainted illegal drugs, and now their poisoning our waters through oil in the gulf.

You see, if you kill people slowly, they spend all their wealth trying to live, and eventually the bankers get the house, the land, and all wealth. Why, because people borrow to pay the medical bills.

Once the wealth has been effectively sucked up and stored as electrons in computers, and all property and land belongs to the banks, then survival will depend on whether one wants to accept their system, or be cut off from buying and selling, and even living.

Because they are gods!.

I have often thought the same thing. It is assumed that the ones who know the combination would be safe, but in a time of chaos, nothing works according to the plan. And, since most of us don't even know where all of this exists in the first place, it's not like it would do us much good. You have to know what your resources are and where they are before you can get help. Nice point, Awakentired!
