When discussing Preparedness and survival, the topic that is often raised is on self-reliance and food preparedness. The preparedness movement is focused on surviving during times of difficulty and peril. Growing and harvesting food is certainly a skill that will help during difficult times, as will foraging for food during potential catastrophic situations. Learning the skills you need for living off your land is important and essential. The June 2014 digital publication offers great training, tips, and encouragement that will help you begin making good food growing preparations now.

The focus of this digital issue of PREPARE Magazine is skills and know-how for Living off the Land. Depending upon your area this can be a very wide topic. One in which we hope to touch on many aspects to encourage you to pursue new ideas in your preparedness plan.
If you live in suburbia or an urban area, one portion of living off the land may include the skill of “Scrap Yard Prepping.” Of course, learning the skill of “How to Safely Dehydrate Ground Beef” will come in handy to take this relatively budget conscious protein on the go. Or living off the land may be more of a decision you make prior to an emergency since “Food Shortages/Prices may make you rethink Homesteading” and “4 Easy Medicinal Plants to Grow.”
“In Pursuit of Wild-crafting” we have articles that touch on “Foraging from the wild and the garden” and the important additional question – “Can we catch Parasites from Foraging Food?” And as if it were a personal quest or perhaps a challenge, one author poses the question: “How off-grid can you get?” but not without offering some suggestions and his own personal story.
And again we bring another installment of “Apache Battle Tactic #8 – Boy Kills Dragon” to bring home some of the skills and stories that made the skills a part of life for the Apache. And last but not least, we are pleased to have “A Pastor’s Perspective: Preparation through Emotional Unity” to help keep things focused for the trying times that appear to be ahead.
It is our hope that with these articles, you will be inspired to reach further, to plan more options for living off the land into your preparedness lifestyle.
