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. For me it comes down to this: Build community before a collapse. While doing this I need to separate resources into caches to minimize risk and build up as much supplies as possible while living life to the fullest. Locate the skills I need and if the time came I could offer them a place in my community as they earned our trust. I find the video is too wishful. They want you to be out and about collecting info and assessing threats but to protect your supplies at all times. A ham radio is a great idea as a safer way of getting news. It's tough for one family to go out and get informed while protecting supplies. This is why a MAG Is so important. No one family can do everything but if you can't find community before a collaspe I would be very careful venturing out past the view of my lookout
  3. We've started harvesting spinach almost every day and we started getting a few strawberries! We're getting some nice radishes and my boy loves to pick wash and hand them out. We've got mint going and the kolrabies are growing nicely. We're due to add soil to the onions and potatoes that are growing well.
  4. Potatoes got some frost but have recovered nicely. We now have radishes/ spinach/ scallions and mint we didn't have before. We're still learning and thank goodness we don't only have this to eat with. Kids found a frog again this year so that made my permaculture heart happy. I want to spread out some plants too close together the next heavy rain. I have a friend using 80% shade cloth to extend his growing season with his strawberries. 2 4 X 8 beds and he's already go 100 perfectly red strawberries! Were learning more everyday! I worried for those that think they can survive off a seed vault and good luck. I'd love to see what you guys got going on in your gardens.
  5. Homemade pita bread pizza! Perfect way to use up leftovers. Also their made in a frying pan so it can be done on a stove/ fireplace and they cook fast.
  6. My 11 year old made a back pack out of an old sweater and a shoe lace. You can use jeans and overalls for more strength. I thought this one would be really useful for Ppl bugging home and caught offguard without gear.
  7. Just noticed that my dog Russell's ears are in the air lol! Love it!
  8. Very nice year for rhubarb and we still got another harvest to go! Perfect filler for juice/ pastries/ bread/ jams and sauces. It doubles your recipes for free! Soak leaves in the sun and create a natural bug repellent for you plants. Perfect for preppers as this plant is unkillable. Competes with grass and wins. No other plant I know gives so much with no care what so ever besides ripping out the flowers so that energy goes to the leaves.
  9. The best is a really good Google and other search engine results. Searching for Prepper MAG/ prepper groups u need to be in the top 3 Next is articles on all the major forums / blogs Basicly the site or you needs to become famous Next would be making it really easy for ppl here to stay anonymous and have a MAG template set up. I created an article on this part as I thought it deserved it.
  10. Good information. He mentions not using national websites to find a group. That is exactly what I would like to have here is a place that is good to meet other preppers. Can you think of anything that would make this a better website for doing that? I will ask this guy the same thing.
  11. I liked this one because the guy actually has a MAG and speaks from experience. For sure I'm one of the guys that pushes hard for a MAG. Probably because I've got a lot going and I'd rather have 500 perennials for five families than the 100 or so we have now. If your in central Canada and don't mind travelling once in a while check out my looking for a MAG post
  12. https://permies.com/t/85907 I really liked this thread on someone wanting to be self sufficient and life always seems to get in her way. Many pointed out that true self sufficiency can only come from community. What they mean to me is were humans and humans have flaws and weaknesses. When I tore out the tendon in my arm I was moving a trailer. If I had community I would have had a hand and it never would have happened end. I spent the summer filling garden beds by hand when a friend with a tractor and 3 days would have saved me a lot of trouble. Communities plant 1000 strawberries and people plant 100. Makes me think more than ever community is the way forward.
  13. This is a video about forming a MAG. The man talks about a "MAG developer" that gets paid to help others form MAG's. Really interesting and it does get intense. Like the man said: you want to trust your life on these Ppl so shouldn't you know everything about them? I also love the idea of giving areas of expertise for the others to learn and having a second in case the first un able to make it for some reason. I like the idea of deadlines for goals. This makes sure the group is advancing and the group becomes welded over time
  14. https://youtu.be/4fHYd8JgkJ4 I really liked this video on food storage. I bet these ready made meals taste better than mountain house for 50-60 cents . Soup has a way of making people feel good too. I could see pasta/ mac & cheese and lots of other stuff too. How's you're food storage looking?
  15. This was a good one. We were going on a 7 day hike with resupply and we could only get down to 25lbs. These guys say 15lbs. These BOB'S get real expensive; Real quick but it's all about shedding pounds and getting to safety quickly. I like the idea of a wagon for the kids and gear but that goes against avoiding conflict. Chances are people will be travelling by road to to move quickly. Early on railroad tracks and hydro pole lines will be good options but if you're not quick to bug out you might be stuck following roads in the woods. This is very hard going and takes 10 X the time and food. Have your gear ready to go and leave ASAP to avoid blocked roads and having to walk/ bike where you're more vulnerable.
  16. The 1 to 100 rule and wasting time now! If SHTF and you decide to build a cabin without a chainsaw. It's going to take 100% more time. Try growing a garden after a breakdown and hauling all your water by hand when all you had to do is install water catchment now and your life wouldn't change. Theirs another aspect of this video that speaks of GSD! People waste time and complain and get nothing done. Don't be surprised when your health, financial situation and moral gets worse. You get what you give in this life!
  17. great price and looks sturdy too. Meadow creek has the heavy duty ones with metal handles for untilled ground. I want to get one of those eventually
  18. Another great video. I love broad forks. This is my favorite one: Bully Tools 92627 Broad Fork with Fiber Glass Handle by Bully Tools Link: http://a.co/iID0M5a They go for about $80. The fiberglass handles are nice and can be replaced with wood handles if they break.
  19. This is a great tool eliminating the need for a rotor tiller. I can see a future where every household has one next to the hoe.
  20. I wish they said what songs/artists were in the soundtrack. It was great. Awesome video!
  21. Very beautiful video of what can be done when people stick together!
