How To Build An Herbal First Aid Kit
Cat Ellis “Herbal Prepper Live

How To Build An Herbal First Aid KitA prepper’s first aid kit is a basic kit that’s often found in a bug out bag or stashed in the car. There may be a larger kit in the house. Sure, you can build a quality kit with a visit to your local pharmacy. But, what if that local pharmacy weren’t there? If we have had a societal collapse, and you run out of your bottle of ibuprofen, clotting agent, or tube of triple antibiotic ointment after just the first month, how will you resupply when there is no pharmacy?

Livestock integration!

Livestock integration!
Host: Nick & Don “We Grow Ours

Livestock cowThis week on the We Grow Ours show Nick and Don will be covering the much anticipated topic of “livestock integration.” The principle is simple, the process isn’t always so. One look at nature and you’ll see there are not any rows of corn, wheat or other mono crops. There are no segregated areas for each individual animal species.

Livestock integration is our way of trying to copy an existing system. The goal is to have a system that uses very little in-put to produce a LOT of food. It’s kind of a solar powered food producer!!
