Many of the prior generation, the greatest generation knew how to grow and preserve their food.
It is widely accepted that if we experience a catastrophe that shuts down grocery stores for 3 days, there will be widespread panic.
Knowing how to grow your own food and to harvest seeds could easily keep your family alive if things get really bad.
