Feed Your Family "One Second After"

  • June 8, 2013 · 10:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This will be a 8 hour event.
We will start from a scenario where the grocery stores are not available for food for an undetermined amount of time. What do we do right now?
We will gather a meal for the evening and talk about how we would gather and store food for our group at different times of the year.
This event will give you experience of what you will do to get food from the land if it can't come from the store.
The date will be somewhere in mid-June and it will be limited to 30 people. There will be a charge according to the cost of presenters and materials for the event. I believe we may also offer a book, "A Field Guide to Edible Wild Plants: Eastern and central North America (Peterson Field Guides)" for an additional $20 if you desire to prepay. A reference book is absolutely necessary unless you have a photographic memory or have studied for years.
I need feedback from you to determine how many people would like to attend (at around $25), how many would like a book, and do you have any information you would like to share about edible wild plant food availability in the area?
We will set the date by mid-May. Also reply if you would like Sat or Sun or some specific week-day.
If there are many respondents we may have more than one event.

    This was one of the most interesting meetings I have been to. We ate wild plants as we walked and talked about eating wild plants. We found about 10 varieties before we got to the end of the driveway. I believe there is enough vegetation in my front yard to feed 20 people three large salads and three green drinks a week for the rest of the summer. Then there is the rest of the 2,458,675 acres just outside my front yard. This was comforting for me to see and realize. I really felt relaxed and at one with everybody. I had a wonderful time. Thanks Family.

    Every time I meet the the people in the thrival group I am so relieved. With every other person I know in the world I am an alien who can't even communicate with them. I am out of place in the"real" world. Thanks Art and everyone. I love you all.

      Yes, Chocolate, air and water are optional. And there are consequences.

    This might actually be something we can come to. Ken is finally off on weekends! If 2 were attending and we wanted to purchase 1 book, how much would that be?

    We must go back to being self reliant during in any disruption of our daily lives and not depend on the government in those situations…it will not be there. Education is the best tool.

    Hey Sophia and other dear friends,
    The real learning is start eating the plants.
    The continuing education is an individual responsibility.
    Necessity is the only viable full time school I know of.
    Get the book. Eat the weeds. Be the change.
    Then teach others.
    This event is experience. Much better than just learning.
    You will learn some important hunter-gatherer attributes and attitudes also.
    Peace Family,
    Art

    I have not been able to attend any of the gatherings but hope to make this one. Would like to know though if it will be hands on and detailed since this is what I need. So many of these type programs just skim the surface and one is still left unable to follow through when the time comes. Plant identification is not really a one day learning process . Perhaps there could be a series of these over a monthd time? Thanks for listening. Sophia

    I'd like the book, too. Thanks.

    Also: A book is not necessary to attend the event. A book is necessary if you really would like to find food in the future.
    Any edible wild plant, mushroom, medicinal plant or tree identification book you have currently please bring along for show 'n tell.

    This event will be kid friendly. The "kids" may play and they may participate, according to their level of interest. They will have to be pretty much "self-sustaining" or participating with parents.
    We will find food....and bring you own "comfort food". Whatever you expect to eat that day.
    Refrigeration and cooking area are available.
    Bring me some chocolate. (Let's see how these subliminal messages, included within the context of "Need to know information", works.
