Here are Tips for Harvesting Food in the Wild

Most of the so-called domesticated foods grown in backyard gardens and commercial nurseries today started out as wild foods.  In years past Native Americans and others would routinely go on food foraging expeditions to look for wild edibles.  The people familiar with the area knew the growing seasons and where the foods typically grew.  They may have even moved their camps to certain areas when they knew food could be harvested.

What Goes Into an Emergency Preparedness Kit for Short Term Disasters?

In our preparedness planning, it is important that we go beyond food storage and consider other preparedness essentials.  While food and water storage is critical, we should also look at preparing for potential short-term and long term disaster or emergency situations.   Our preparation efforts may very well determine our ability to survive. Emergencies (or disaster situations) can typically be classified as either short or long term. You may deal with short-term emergencies - such as losing power for a day or having a health emergency.  These short-term situations usually pass fairly quickly. Even though these tense situations may pass quickly [...]

Important Food Storage Guidelines For Emergency Preparedness

We have always heard that a person can live without food for 30 days, but can not survive longer than 3 days without water.  But for individuals who are dependent on solid foods, it would certainly be difficult for them to make it through and thrive during an emergency situation where food is limited. Earthquakes, hurricanes, typhoons, tornadoes, drought, fire accidents, gas surges, flooding, electrical accidents, or bio-hazards, are some of the typical events and disasters that people consider in their preparedness.  While many homes are making all the essential preparations like:  emergency strategies, bug-out kits, fire drills in case [...]

Seeds: The Importance of Proper Harvesting and Storage

Many people consider food storage to be one of the most important areas for survival planning. Certainly, we won't argue the fact that food storage is a vital part of preparedness planning for crisis situations, but, food storage alone is not a complete long-term survival solution. We must begin to actively consider active food production. In other words, we need a plan to produce food. If we only consider a food storage plan, we are only providing a temporary solution to our food consumption needs. We must develop a long-term strategy to replace what we consume. So, that would certainly [...]

Crisis Preparation: Immediate Action Plan

Imagine you wake up tomorrow and there is no electricity, no natural gas, and the stores are shuttered. A crisis has struck while you slept. The government has declared a state of emergency. Landlines do not work no Internet and no cell phones. It is dark and you are already hungry. Some people are oblivious to their surroundings, and if they wake to a cold dark room, they panic. They may not survive because, they immediately deny the facts and some, will succumb to fear and perish quickly. Training and practice stifles panic. Knowledge gives you the confidence to meet [...]
