Economic Collapse Preparation – Experience is the Greatest Teacher


A discussion on doing more than just conceptualizing. Planning and research are crucial ,however, actually going through the process, making mistakes and learning from those mistakes is better done now when mistakes will not cost more than money. A wise man once told me actions speaks louder than words.

    @clarkewi That’s our point, thanks for the comment!

  2. I’ve grown my own veges for two years and it’s not impossible, but it is ALOT of work. Alot more work than I had realized. That was the shocker for me. You’ve got to clear, plant, weed, water, fertilize, protect from pests and then harvest and store. And that’s just veges.

    i appreciate the images and advice in this video! also i want to add, it’s good to get out there and start trying yer hand at gardenning and small animal husbandry to learn the ins and out but not be discouraged when all doesn’t urn out successful right away. the first potatoes i grew were tiny but i learned how much more water they needed! so it wasn’t a failure, but a successful learning experience! folks don’t let doubt prevent you from trying and learning. now IS the time indeed!

    @stayingawake20 right, unless you have magic seeds or animals you must wait for things to grow and reproduce to harvest food. Tell ur friend to put on antlers and brown clothes to go deer hunting and see if he thinks that’s a good idea. I bet he’ll say it’s a great idea…LOL!

    Way over simplified! You are very correct! As a NON-hunting friend said, “if I get hungry I’ll just go shoot a deer.” I told him good luck! You must learn to hunt, and the time to do that is NOW! All must start learning today or they will become a statistic. Great vid, and a way better time for the show!

    @thmsmhgn we tried that and it was not good for our plants. I know other gardeners who refuse to do that as well. Each plants nutritional needs are different, we let ours sit before use to ensure healthy plants. Mrs.NAN

  7. A good idea to network now with other and more seasoned homesteaders, gardeners, and farmers. Great to have their wisdom on hand as most are glad to help others learn from their experience.

    Couldn’t agree more! I am an experienced gardener and always had success. I moved to another region of the US and now I am having to learn about a huge variety of issues that I didn’t have in the North East. Each year bring a few more problems to learn about and deal with. Crop failure is tough in many ways.

    very true. we are preppers and have learned that the best thing is to start living a more homesteading type of life style now to help with the skills as well as continuing to gather prep supplies. We’ve learned to eat better, keep gardens, raise fruit, have chickens and soon we will be raising rabbits also. We want to do it now, not when it’s too late to make a mistake. Great talk! Hope you make more videos.

    I’d like to have a farm, garden, etc. to grow & raise food, but for me, I live in an apartment : (

    Very good video/audio presentation. I hope everyone takes this as a reminder and a necessary piece of wisdom.

  13. You can use rabbit fertilzer right away, it is not hot.
