Food is one resource that many of us take for granted. Unfortunately, as modern society evolves, we face a number of potential threats to our food supply, making reliable access to food anything but guaranteed. Over the years, we have developed a false sense of security. To be truly prepared for any disaster in an uncertain future, we must be able to grow our own food. However, it is not enough to simply grow a garden for self-sufficiency while under peaceful conditions. Any garden utilized for food production must also be resilient to challenges we face in times of crisis. Whether you refer to yourself as a prepper, survivalist, gardener, or homesteader, this book will enable you to achieve the following :
- Learn why everyone’s food security is at risk and why we all need to do more to prepare
- Apply the techniques of risk management to survival gardening to increase your odds of success
- Increase the survivability of your garden and your family using best practices that combine traditional gardening with disaster preparation
- Protect your garden from natural hazards such as flooding, inclement weather, soil erosion, wildfires, infestations, and others
- Mitigate chemical, biological, and radiological hazards such as toxic industrial chemicals, infectious diseases, and radioactive fallout
- Protect your survival garden from looting and vandalism with special tactics to avoid detection and recognition
- Develop and implement countermeasures that are effective for your own unique situation
The new approach presented in this book will enhance your thought process and mindset for survival.
