FREE Grow Your Own Food Workshop

For the Workshop I'm going to be teaching about why and how to plan a year's worth of food for your garden.

2018 Emergency Preparedness Roadmap
2018 will mark the TENTH year that we have been blogging and building our food storage.

How to cook without power – need to know info!
