Do you have a "black thumb"? We thought we did too. As luck (or fate?) would have it, we were introduced to Darciea Houston who helped us turn our backyard bed into a thriving garden. We were so excited to have our first guest talk with us about growing your own food which is a great way to prepare and feed you and yours if SHTF. As we get back to the earth and connect with what's around us, we discover the spiritual side of gardening, including connecting with our ancestors and finding healing.
Some things we talked about in this episode:
In Episode 7 we talked allllll about food storage for an emergency situation, including emergency food rations. Want to know how they taste? Check out our Preparedness Food Taste Test on Youtube! We cooked and sampled a bunch of different emergency food (so you don’t have to).
Mik started our gardening journey with a Vegebox, which is great for indoor hydroponic gardening. Mik also watched the gardening MasterClass taught by Ron Finley, the “gangsta gardener.” Ron is doing really cool things in LA. Check out his website and IG (@ronfinleyhq).
We had an amazing first guest on the podcast - Darciea Houston!!! She’s a permaculturist (WTF is permaculture?) and all-around gardening master. Check her out on IG (@darceiahouston) and Facebook. You can also find her children’s character Major Melanin and buy Filthy Rich Nutrients on her website.
