About This Club

Where we discuss forming mutual aid groups, homesteading, survival and living that better life. Life was better when communities worked together. Let's help raise eachother up!

  1. What's new in this club
  2. This subject has been bothering me for a long time. Those that lose their jobs before society figures out how to solve the massive under employment problem will suffer immensely. How does a lawyer deal with only having a tenth of what he had before? Listen; Think and comment! Namaste
  3. I've been pushing very hard for preppers to form MAG'S and even though I had given up on some. They hadn't gave up on me. New hope is on the horizon. A MAG to me is is not only for emergencies. It's so we can enhance our lives: - Groups buys save money - MAG'S are families at their cores and they give you a reason to keep fighting for what's right. - MAG'S empower it's family members to advance faster/ live longer and empower it's families by helping them - MAG'S work hard but play even harder: I could see a food forest on every familiy property/ animals grazing in multiple paddocks if they so chose/ lots of fun things to do/ people to talk to/ nobody is alone/ invest in eachother businesses/ buy eachother products A MAG family member must fight for the beterment of the MAG in good and bad times/ make sacrafices for the MAG/ help make each other's goals a reality. MAG'S are very emotional things. You must work harder because of them/ if one succeeds they share the bounty. Unselfish/ unwavering / a promisse to protect eachother families. If you die. The MAG will ensure your families survival. No different or less important than their own children. Nobody is born to be in a MAG. They accept the challenge adapt and overcome. A community like no other.
  4. This is exactly why we created ThriveThrough. We want people to band together and build prepared communities. Why waste time and energy doing it alone? We could be working together towards the same goals at 2-100 times the speed and efficiency. All it takes is someone stepping up and saying, "Let's do this"! Thank you @ProtectorCdn for being one of those people. I hope this will inspire others to do the same.
  5. I was speaking with my wife why I created this club. "This can't be it!" I said to her. Work lots of overtime, activities 4 days a week, help out your community and almost no time to prepare/ advance on my raised garden/ back to eden garden for my perennials. Enjoying living a far off wish that always escapes you. I took me almost one whole summer to create my garden when three guys could have done it in 2-3 days. Their lots of people with no land or no involved community like me. Why can't we just help/ learn from each other and live that better life. Gardening/ canning/ preparedness/ security/ skills need to be taught. It looks easy on youtube; you try it and one just do this would have allowed you to complete that first pressure canning successfully. 3-4 GSD families could be well prepared in 1/10th the time of. One family giving it their all. Having fun and building community to boot. The results would be less stress/ increased productivity and real freedom because most families won't be prepared by themselves because of lack of skills or just life taking over. I'm guilty of this too. Hopefully my journey will help your push to acheive your preparedness. This only works if everyone benefits! Let's say you live in Toronto/ montreal/ Ottawa and join a MAG I'm apart of. Everyone would help everyone else achieve 3 months of preparedness. Not always easy to store 3 months of preparedness in an apartment but if everyone helps it can be done. If you can't give so much time; then you barter or give $ so other can do your part. MAG'S support eachother businesses so the revenue of all should increase. Also say if you plant 30 fruit trees on my land that were protected, had automatic watering and you came to improve that homestead once in a while. 3/4s of the fruit would be yours. Maybe it's equal shares for all perennials on all properties. All I know is if you don't give a lot; Nobody's going to give you anything. We can it together and feed the whole MAG plus it's family's. The sky's the limit when a MAG is dedicated to providing for itself and it's safety. Theirs another option that's frankly more actionable. We meet people online and we feel that we know them. My buddy from Westshieldoutpost.ca is like this. I'd already have started a traditional MAG if he wasn't in Manitoba but in a pooling MAG he'd be perfect. Great guy/ Nice family/ freedom, hard working man wanting to protect his family same as mine. (By the way encourage good people's businesses so they can better their communities) They give you good prices and everyone wins. We meet once or twice a year because of distance. Once for a week or two is perfect to GSD and have campfires in the evening's. We start a fund. Say we're 3 people. All 3 must sign off on the reason for distributing said funds. Sickness/ jobloss/ preparedness/ land. The amount and reason must be oked by all. If you know a way to have money held until it's needed let me know. Maybe a treasurer I'd voted in. Maybe everyone holds their own money and funds are transfered when voted in. Any constructive additions to this? Don't give up! Lots of good people are looking for a real MAG like me.
  6. This is my response to this post on another site: Should you not strive for something just because it's difficult? I've been looking to be part of something like this my whole life. Families need community. That's the problem today. Nobody helps you fix your house but they give you taxes. The taxes make you work 3 months a year to pay them off so it's a lot more difficult than before to give back for that better life. I have two kids in scouts so I became a scout leader. I was in scouts for 2 years and loved it. Somebody gave so I could learn and evolve from that experience. I work all night and have packed groceries 3hr on thursday and 6 yesterday for scouts. I'm helping my friend do his roof today. "Be the change you want to see in the world!" Stop praying for things to change and start shaping the world you want to see. My article on mutual aid groups was picked as the staff pick for the last email along with one other. https://community.thrivethrough.com/forums/topic/526-what-is-a-mag-what-would-a-mag-look-like/ What say you?
  7. Kids take dibs on blankets way before they hit my bed. Maybe next time :o)
  8. The story of my wife's people the Hmong crossing the mekong river from Laos to Thailand to escape the secret war. Many gave opium to their babies so they wouldn't give the whole group away to the soldiers ready to kill on sight.
  9. Downstairs wood stove! Nothing like wood heat! We always smile when the power goes out in the winter
  10. Chickens trying to lay in the same nest. They like to hide em all over in the summer
  11. Canada geese go right over our house 3 months a year. Maybe we'll have to taste one someday
  12. Me just after getting my cast off. Fighting to complete the 47 raised beds in one season by hand!
  13. Biggest and largest potatoes to date. This year well get a lot more with raised mounding more than twice
  14. Garden tomatoes! Too cold to get red ones without a greenhouse. Now that rabbits are gone well do round 2
  15. First year with the hugel raised beds and the veggies are bigger than anything else we've grown. The traditional mini hugel at the old place did great with perennials. Our rosemary actually survived zone2 winter mulched with leaves. Got to over three ft too
  16. Choke cherries! They make the best vodka infusions for those sleepless or pain nights
