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.

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.

The fact is, disaster can strike quickly and without warning.  It can require you to evacuate your community, office or school or can restrict you to your house.  It can disrupt your […]
