Patterns & Design
The Boy Scouts knew where it was at when they coined the motto “be prepared.” Now you can learn the basics of getting your home and family ready for whatever may come your way – from the Zombie Apocalypse to a rogue squirrel getting fried on your lines and leaving you without power for a week. Seriously, though, if you think about all the systems that have to work for you to live your daily life, it can get a little freaky to think how fragile our way of life really is – but it doesn’t have to be. This isn’t about fear, y’all, it’s about peace of mind. Plus, we’ll have beer and snacks for you to assuage and lingering anxiety.
We’ll cover reasons why you might want to prepare as well as the basics of preparation including shelter, water, food, communications and more. You’ll learn how to create your own, customized plan for your family as well as the supplies you might need based on different possible scenarios. Additionally, the importance of resilient communities will be touched on as well as how you can help your community be prepared for whatever the future brings. Even when everything is smooth sailing, it helps to have your homestead in order.
