What is M.A.G.? (Mutual Aid/Assistance Group)
A Mutual assistance/aid group, or MAG, are groups of people who band together to provide essential support in the event of a natural disaster or other emergency or catastrophic event, or just to help each other build each other's self-sufficiency/reliance as a team.

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.

A Mutal aid Group to me could be 3 or 4 families and even up to 20 families. Their is no leader! Everyone makes the rules and the head of sections would prepare the group for that task.

I thought maybe it would be interesting to go through a definition of philosophy and talk about some of the basic concepts behind philosophy, so that at least you have some understanding of the approach that I take when it comes to discussing philosophical questions, and see if it’s worthwhile or something that you would like to incorporate into your life: the study of wisdom, or knowledge, or truth, or reality, or ethics, and so on.

Word Domination Gardening by Paul Wheaton
This project started with video from a three day workshop. The workshop covered the earthworks for building a pond without a liner, a swale, and a hugelkultur bed on a terrace. Then we added more footage by doing the same workshop over again in a colder climate.

A year later, we returned to the first workshop site and added even more footage! We even had an evaluation by the Crown Prince of Permaculture, Geoff Lawton.
