Even in the best case scenario-- i.e. nothing bad happens-- the skills one gains by prepping are beneficial in a multitude of ways and the goods you've put aside are still useful. Therefore, even if you're wrong, it's time and money well spent.
I have considerable experience growing heirloom varieties of food using sustainable organic methods. I spent a summer interning on an organic farm and also learned to raise hens for eggs there. I know how to grow and cook food from seed to plate and how to preserve the harvest for the winter and the seeds for the following year. I am also an amateur angler, a decent forager, and First Aid/CPR trained.
I'm not the type to put 100% of my resources into prepping. I still have RRSPs, not just a room full of cans. I believe SHTF scenarios to be unlikely but a real possibility, and therefore allocate a small portion of my resources to preparing for them. I view this as no different from procuring home insurance. Why be caught unprepared if you don't have to be?
Welcome to TSG Fawn!
Fawn, thanks for such great responses to my question. I apologize for the delay in greeting but I'm sure you can see that we have a lot going on this week. Your right on par with the type of people that makes this network 'work' and it sounds like your skills in agriculture would be an invaluable asset in the event of 'an event'. We have a couple of things happening this Sunday night and if you're free I encourage you to come out and meet some of our members.
