This is a group for those who are interested in knowing how to prepare for emergencies, and how to be self- sufficient. In these times, when a three day snowstorm can drive people in droves to the grocery store for basic supplies, you need to know what to keep on hand so you don't have to join those hordes. While there will likely be some discussions about hard-core prepping activities, most of the emphasis will be directed toward either learning or teaching basics, like how to set up food storage and maintain it, how to use your stored goods, what to do in an emergency if you can't get to a hospital, how medicinal herbs can help you both daily and in emergencies, how to set up and maintain a garden, then how to preserve your foods and herbs. We will also cover how to make your own cleaning supplies, health and beauty aids, and general self-sufficiency. Note that we are not a weapons training group.
