Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty

Tim MacWelch downloadWould you like a copy of “Prepare For Anything” ? Here’s your chance on this edition of I Am Liberty. We only made it into two seasons on our show last week with Tim MacWelch. There was some incredible talk about processing acorns and also some very necessary warning for those who are going out into the woods to give the foraging thing a shot. I highly recommend you listen to Part I of our adventure before tuning into Part II. Not only for your health and wellness but because of the fact that we had great conversation and solid knowledge on a great topic.

Would you have ever imagined spring being a killer season? We talked about Tim’s ancestry and how the Powhatan Indians’ most challenging times came in spring before the food really became substantial. Continue reading Wild Edibles with Tim MacWelch Part II

The Urban Medic Part 2 – Medicinal Herbs
Host: Sam Coffman “The Human Path”

Urban MedicLast week, Sam Coffman talked about the “urban medic,” or ways of dealing with injury and illness in an urban environment using wilderness and herbal medicine skills. Sam discussed the details of setting up a neighborhood clinic as well as considerations of being a mobile medic in an urban area that is experiencing unrest, protests or mob violence.

Urban MedicThis week on The Human Path Sam will discuss the specific herbs and other first aid gear that you should consider having or carrying in this kind of a situation.

Edible Forest Garden

Idaho Mountain lowerImagine yourself in a forest where everything around you is either food or medicine!  you have to look carefully, but if you do, you find fruits and nuts swelling with ripeness on the branches all around you!  Because it’s so well hidden, “Zombie hoards” pass by without noticing.  Pears, apples, persimmons, plums, almonds, and peaches hang from the branches.  Shrubs fill the gaps in the forest canopy with raspberries, blueberries, currants, hazelnuts, wild edibles, herbs, and perennial vegetables thickly cover the ground. You can use all of these plants for food or medicine too. Some attract beneficial insects, birds, and butterflies. Others act as soil builders, or simply Ozark23177help keep out weeds. Here and there vines climb on trees, shrubs, or arbors with fruit hanging through the foliage—hardy kiwis, grapes, and passionflower fruits. In sunnier glades large stands of Jerusalem artichokes grow together with groundnut vines. These plants support one another as they store energy in their roots for later harvest and winter storage.  It’s a magical garden of Eden, where no one maintains it, no one digs or rototills the soil, and everything grows in abundance year after year!  Join GoatHollow, and his guest “Athatcher85″ this Wednesday for a discussion on how Preppers can start their own “Edible Forest Garden”
