If you were cut off from civilization and stranded in the wilderness, would you be able to survive? If access to food was disrupted, how quickly could you become self-sufficient? Prepare for the unexpected with the Prepper’s Foraging Set! This set includes:
Eating on the Run: Survival Foraging for Plants, Grasses, Nuts, and Berries
For you, being prepared is a way of life. Your survival pantry is brimming with delicious dried and canned foodstuffs, your garden produces bumper crops of fresh vegetables year after year, and your hunting and fishing skills keep your freezer well stocked with healthy proteins. Having enough food to survive an emergency is the least of your worries.
But what if you find yourself stranded in the wilderness and unable to get home for days or weeks ... or even months? Could you live off nature's bounty until you can return to civilization? You can if you follow Teddy Roosevelt's advice. The food you need will be "where you are" ... if you know which ones will serve your purpose.
There are some 2,000 edible plants recorded, most of which are not cultivated as crops. Growing wild, these little-appreciated but healthful and palatable plants can feed you well in the wilderness at every time of year, even in the dead of winter. After all, these plants sustained earlier cultures for thousands of years, and they could well save your life today.
Eating on the Run will equip you with a working knowledge of dozens of readily harvested plants, grasses, nuts, and berries that require the least, if any, preparation. You will learn how to distinguish safe plants from toxic varieties, which parts of the plants are edible and when, and where abundant supplies are likely to be in each season. Plus, the author shares delicious ways to enjoy the plants when on the move.
No survival pantry is complete without this book!
Guerrilla Gardening for Long-Term Survival
Eating local takes on a whole new meaning in a survival scenario. The ability to feed oneself efficiently and discreetly under varying conditions could prove indispensable in a prolonged upheaval (where normal food distribution is halted or seriously disrupted). Gardening of any kind isn’t rocket science. People have been doing it for millennia all across the globe. But you’ll need to learn some specific skills to get macro production in clandestine micro settings. Guerrilla Gardening for Long-Term Survival will teach you all about topics that include:
- Choosing appropriate and compatible crops
- Camouflaging crops with natural and improvised screens
- Maximizing natural barrier plants and pesticides
- Adapting raised-bed, square-foot, tower, and canopy gardening to your site
- Feeding your garden with natural compost and manure
- Growing foods without soil or sunshine
An added bonus of growing your own food is that it is cheaper, fresher, tastier, and as organic as you make it, and your footprint (carbon and otherwise) is greatly minimized. In Fred Demara's revised version of this how-to manual, he gives readers food for thought about starting their own guerrilla gardens.
