SSC027: When the world series and society fails to satisfy, there is always a garden. - Minnie Aumonier
I feel like this is a topic that doesn't get talked about nearly enough in the survival community, learning to grow food. While knowing how to forage for food is an amazing and important skill, for the long term, learning to grow and preserve your own food is a much safer and more reliable practice.
If you have a piece of land that you're able to build on, getting a sustainable, plant based food system started should be your #1 priority. Naturally, there are numerous platforms for this from traditional gardening, permaculture, hydroponics, etc. Find the system that best fits your goals and of course your budget. But still, learn to grow your own food!
If I saw as many gardens as guns on survival or #SHTF accounts I probably wouldn't feel driven to post this. And I certainly don't mean to insult folks who connect with the "prepper" mentality, but just know that if you spend more time at the range than in the garden, you're not prepared.
