You’re growing a survival garden for you, for your family, and for your group.
You do not want this wilderness garden to be out in the open for any “passerby”, hungry or not, to spot. Hiding your garden may be very important.
What to do? How can you hide it in “plain sight”?
In Part 1 of this Prepper Recon Podcast, David the Good shared his ideas on creating a self-sustaining, self-perpetuating forest type of garden. Essentially, a food forest.
In part 2, the discussion focuses on composting, sandy soil, and growing spinach:
The idea is to create a self-sustaining, self-perpetuating forest type of garden, a food forest. Once established (a long-term proposition), this edible ecosystem takes care of itself: no annual tilling of the soil, no planting of seeds, and no daily “farming chores”.
On this Prepper Recon Podcast, David the Good discusses how you study the existing layers of your local forests: the tall and medium size trees, the shrubs and vines, and the underground growth.
These layers provide insights into what this forest habitat can naturally sustain, the fruits, nuts, berries, tubers, etc.
Once established this forest garden could provide edible crops for decades or longer. You could never walk away from a field of sweet corn and expect a crop next year.
But you could return to your food forest after a long absence, sit in the shade and enjoy a meal. Or so David says.
