Camouflaged food forest!
Host: Tara and Common Sense Prepping
Secret Garden of Survival bestselling author Rick Austin will be the guest on the next episode of Common Sense Prepping. Austin will teach the audience about the value of growing a camouflaged food forest. By following Rick’s natural gardening method, an abundance of food can be grow in a relatively small area and not attract the attention of potential hungry marauding hordes.
Rick Austin was recently featured on National Geographic’ Doomsday Castle. He taught the cast how to establish a secret food forest and the important of weeds. Yes, weeds are actually good for your garden. During the Common Sense Prepping radio show, Austin will educate the audience about the vital role weeds play in the growing process. Austin is also featured in the upcoming documentary, Beyond Off Grid.
The gardening author and experienced prepper will also be discussing the dire situation on honeybees. Due to the ever-expanding use of chemical pesticide and herbicide, such as Monsanto’ Roundupready, the bee population is disappearing at an alarming rate. Honeybee are directly responsible for the growth of about 70 percent of our food supply – that equates to about one in every three bites of food we put in our mouths. If the honeybees die, the human and animal population are not far behind.
“Nature doesn’t have pesticides or fertilizers, and we have had berry bushes and fruit trees without any help or intrusion from man for centuries. Turning soil over is another bad idea, because it loses nutrients. Planting in straight rows is also not a good idea. Mechanized farming has been around since about WWII. Chemical companies which made bombs for the war effort grew fast and ultimately found themselves with nothing to do after World War II ended – then along came fertilizer. Chemical companies told farmers that fertilizer would help grow more plants more quickly in the same space, instead of letting nature take its course,” Rick said.
Join us tonight on Common Sense Prepping to learn more about creating a survival garden and the dangers of continued GMO use in the United States.
