All Is Not Lost On Non Preppers!

All Is Not Lost On Non Preppers!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian

Non PreppersLast week, I took a break from recording in order to go back to my hometown to help out some non preppers. On December 22, between 20 and 40 mm of freezing rain fell on several towns in the Eastern Townships of Quebec. Not only was this very reminiscent of the 1998 Ice Storm, but in this case many of my own family and friends were left without electrical service for up to a week, meaning a dark Christmas for many.

Non PreppersI took the opportunity to take a tour of the region and offer my help and advice to those affected. Without outing myself as a prepper I was able to help at least one person get a generator set up, which surprisingly started a chain reaction in the neighborhood. To my astonishment there were no comments like we preppers usually hear, about how our homes will be a gathering point of the less prepared. Instead, a neighborhood became interested in becoming more self reliant in the face of future power outages. Continue reading All Is Not Lost On Non Preppers!

Community preparedness, knowing neighbors!

Community PreparednessCommunity preparedness, a great reason to make that initial contact with your neighbor. I think as a goal, a goal not just to get prepared but to better the American lifestyle we should push to meet a handful of our neighbors before the end of the year. Let’s take it even one step further. In fact, how about pushing to at least begin discussions on one major community level project before years end? This goal is one that will serve to not only create the ground work for your community but also give you a base from which to leap into 2014.

Preparedness Skills and Topics for the Individual, Home, and the Neighborhood!

Skills GardensToday’s podcast is a culmination of several topics that are in response to several emails about my previous podcasts and articles. All of these email subjects can be tied together, however, under the topic of “Preparedness Skills.” I start this podcast by discussing some of the different methods that we learn important skills – and by this I am even referring to simple skills and knowledge such as what kinds of foods to can, dry canning vs. wet canning, the difference between short-range and long-range foods, etc.

9-4HerbalMedic2Thanks to the internet, we can get an amazing amount of information through articles, youtube, podcasts, blogs and so forth. In addition to that, there are of course thousands of books on any and all of the subjects surrounding the concepts of preparedness.

Is that enough? Or is it necessary to go to classes at a school to learn this information? What does a school give you that you can’t just get on your own? And if do want to attend a school, how do you go about finding one that actually fits exactly what your needs are so that you don’t waste any of your money?

Taking the skills from the individual to the family and community level, I talk about some very important concepts related to prepping around the home and neighborhood. Forest gardening, medicinal and food gardening, home and neighborhood defense, the “culture of community,” and how this helps create a stronger, more resilient force against those who would take what they want if there were no more rule of law on the streets.

Sharing the Rewards of a Community Garden!

8-9-2I wanted to update you on our community garden. We are in the thralls of our first growing season and there have been plenty of challenges. Still for our small amount of space we were able to garner some quality vegetables and I am sure we will continue to grow. From this experience I have come to the conclusion that the community garden is a worthwhile endeavor for any prepper in a close knit community. We will talk about the benefits tonight as well as the challenges. Continue reading Sharing the Rewards of a Community Garden!
