I would take a clean coca cola bottle, fill it half with soil and half with sea water, and make sure it stays liquid for the next 1000 years.
"Everything is everywhere and the environment selects" (BB) + "life is what happens to you while you're busy making other plans" (JL).
If it is well closed and nothing escape from the bottle than there should be enough of everything needed to sustain life for much longer than a millennia.
