With famine on the horizon and the End Times finale only a few years away, the people of Earth are increasingly faced with the pending necessity of being self-sufficient. What does this mean? To feed oneself and one’s family the first step is to establish a garden. The fallback is to eat what Nature provides, to forage. To keep the lights on when the grid is down will require a windmill or watermill or solar panels or even a bike gen apparatus. If in a flood zone building a community houseboat cluster is the answer. All these things are possible.

Famine in a rural area might be addressed by converting grazing land for cattle into gardens growing food for people. Complete nutrition can be secured from a vegetarian diet high in Lysine. Suburban families can convert their lawns, and in the city container gardening on porches can be used. Saving seed is paramount. Seed from Corn and Beans and Melons are relatively easy – just let the seed mature and dry - biennial plants like Cabbage or Carrots require a root cellar and a Winter’s nap. Cuttings from Potatoes or Cloning are other propagation techniques.

There is a learning curve, so one must simply start, as Juan and Linda in Michigan did. The first challenge they faced was keeping the chickens and ducks from eating the seedlings. Next trellises to hoist climber plants to the sunlight and starter pots to keep the frequent rainwater from drowning seedlings. This ambitious couple, who started the ZetaTalk Followers forums, plans on growing a plethora of plants. Seed may be in such demand that this may be the last year when starting such a garden is possible. So grow your own seed!

Image

List of plants: potatoes, onions, cucumbers, zucchini, pumpkin, melons, watermelons. Lots of peppers: hot serranos, banana, green and red, cayenne, and jalapeno. Perennial asparagus, strawberries. Various types of tomatoes. All sorts of herbs we normally use: cilantro, basil, dill, sage, mustard horseradish. Propagating wild blackberries, sweet potatoes, lots of sunflowers. We will have an overabundance of tomatoes and peppers, what we don't eat will be canned and preserved for Winter use, remainder will be shared with neighbors, chicken and ducks. Our neighbors are growing corn, we'll trade with them. Anything we buy regularly is being planted, carrots and celery, too.

As Karen of the Pole Shift ning says, Plunge Right In! Soil is often hard packed and must be prepped. It can be passed through a screen and mulch and manure added. Urine has nitrates and is a fertilizer. How big should your garden be? The Morning Chores site says a 1 Acre Farm will do.

Image


The rewarding and healthful lifestyle of small-scale farming can be yours on as little as one acre of land. The key to success is not size. Your 1-acre farm will flourish. We live on 2 acres and have an orchard, large garden, berry patches, grape vines, an herb garden, and livestock. We haven’t even come close to utilizing all of our land yet.
Growing power is an example. Growing Power was born in Milwaukee in 1993, and the operation became a role model in many cities, growing fresh fruits and vegetables for sale and consumption. Raising chickens and even goats in cities or suburbs is doable, and one can feed them vegetable scraps and weeds or let the chickens free range for bugs. Goats will eat anything and provide excellent milk. All these activities have a learning curve so don’t delay! Get started now!

Growing Power in Detroit is one of the most famous examples of urban permaculture in the U.S. and produces 87,000 pounds of food every year (including fish, honey, eggs and milk) on less than 2 acres in the heart of Detroit!
If frustrated by a lack of outdoor space or inhospitable climate, consider a hydroponic garden. I, Nancy, had one in my basement and can assure you, it was growing and blooming! With adequate sunlight from a window or through greenhouse glass, electricity is not needed, though full spectrum light is best. Gravity hydroponics requires that a person hoist a pail of water once a day or so. Wood ash can counter any acidic acid buildup. You will need to use commercial hydroponic nutrient solution or have worm beds to make your own.

Image

As part of the Troubled Times nonprofit ventures, we did an experiment to learn how effective a worm water hydroponic nutrient solution could be. Vital Earth in Australia produced this liquid fertilizer for sale, and advised us. Leaf for leaf the worm water was as effective as a commercial hydroponic nutrient solution. The nutrients produced in the fish tank could not compete.

Image

The earthworm beds are easy to build and maintain, and the compost becomes a highly fertile soil additive! Plus earthworms are 82% protein with Omega 3 as their essential oil. Best worms to secure are the Red Wigglers. One can still buy them via the Internet and get them shipped in a bag. Don’t delay! Compost to feed a worm bed can be from kitchen cuttings or even lawn mowing. Animal meat or fats should not be used. Remember to remove the excess egg casts as they signal the earthworms to stop reproducing. The egg casts themselves are also excellent fertilizer.

The alternative to gardens and flocks and herds is gathering what Nature provides. Wildlife such as deer is likely to be hunted almost to extinction by hungry hunters, but by eating lysine rich vegetables and fish a complete diet can be garnered. Duckweed is 45% protein compared to soy which is 36% protein. For protein, the obvious solution is to eat bugs and worms. No need to worry about the Vitamin bottle going empty or losing your teeth to scurvy, as the bugs and weeds in Nature provide all you need.

Self-sufficiency includes being off the grid. Options for producing electricity on your own include an array of Solar Panels or Wind or Watermills or a bike generator. Windmills can be made from scrap, as this 14 year old boy in Africa has demonstrated. And a bike generator likewise can be made from a discarded bike. Watermills can be placed in rivers or streams or even in a downspout to make electricity from rain. All one needs is an alternator, which can be found in any car and many appliances such as lawn mowers.

If living in a flood plain and unable to resettle on high ground, you should anticipate forming a houseboat community or living in pole homes above the tides. Fishing will be readily available, and with a houseboat community if the sea level rises, you can just move with the tides. Container gardening, such as tomato plants on the boat will augment the fish and seaweed and duck weed diet. Distill your drinking water and remember that trash can be a treasure and little things can prove to be basic necessities.
