For better or for worse, our modern society has made us dependent upon what many of us call the system. We go to the store and there’s our food.
We go to the local hardware store and there’s our tools and wood. We pay a bill and expect our homes to be warm. But we didn’t always live like that.
There was a time before this supply chain existed where we did a lot more for ourselves. I’d like to talk about 8 survival skills you should relearn.
1. Gardening for food.
This is an important one. On an individual level, we become more self-reliant and healthy.
In the larger scheme, locally grown food, and that includes food you’ve grown yourself, is a key part of poverty reduction and being able to effectively feed 7 billion people or more. But how is it done?
It’s not terribly difficult. At its most basic, all you need is sun, seed, dirt and water.
Of course, there’s a lot more to it than that, and this primerwill help you navigate the process of starting your own garden.
