Self Reliance is a hot topic in today’s American economy, and as far as that goes in the global economy. It is a matter of NOT going down the ship when perilous times hit. We can be prepared and not go down with the ship if we think in terms of not trusting the government to do for us in what we can do for ourselves.
We can be a nation that works together in harmony by being self-reliant, individually and collectively. For instance, growing your own food as your own personal garden or you can have a community garden, you can take up canning your food and putting it up for food storage, spinning and weaving for making your own clothing, thinking safety by having an evacuation plan for your family in case of emergency, and first aid equipment is essential not just for you and your family but you can administer first aid to someone that is suffering as well.
Let us start with the ability to grow your own food. For under $400.00 you can have a 40′ homemade greenhouse by including PVC pipes, Visqueen, and a flat garden hose with holes to mist the plants with a low flow of water. Of course, you will have to buy a timer for the length of time to be watered. You will also need to develop a compost mixture, oak leaves is a good substance to put into the compost.
If you can be creative and want to build your own off the grid power source, you will want to check out this link below. We are living in an age where it cost so darn much money to live. We work and work and we are not able to spend time with our kids or as far s that goes we do not have time to follow dreams. Every little bit helps when we can save money and that we can be self-reliant. Off the grid power is one of the best ways to be self-reliant, if you can generate enough power with your simple easy to build generator you will be able to have money for other things that matter to you. We will be posting more self-reliance videos and articles and so please come back and visit us here at the Golden Eagles of America the ” Food For Thought segment!
Another form of self-reliance is within oneself so that we can all be strong and resourceful. It is also about how one thinks about themselves. Enjoy the videos below!
