This peace corps manual from the CD3WD set teaches all that and more.
Not every prepper owns a 40 acre farm, most of us do well to have a suburban garden. So we need to pack every inch with productivity. This is where intensive gardening shines.
That is why I own so many books on gardening, I want to be able to grow my own food from seed. However, my problem is not knowledge, it is skill. Mostly its patience, but that is a skill….
I strongly recommend any person interested in self-sufficiency or disaster resilience (prepping) buy seeds, but don’t JUST store them, get out and PLANT them.
I know that the more I grow my own food the better I get at it. In the beginning I felt it was easy and did not require practice. I spent a lot of money on plants and got very little food in exchange.
While owning seeds is a part of being prepared for a large scale collapse, it is not enough. You must have the skill.Intensive Gardening for Profit and Self Sufficiency
