What is a Survival Garden and Why You Should Start One

Instructor: Ann Marie Lewellyn

Most people think of a survival garden as just simply growing enough food for your family to survive a natural disaster or a catastrophe. But it so much more than that.

A survival garden is designed to ‘grow” with your the long term. In addition to edible plants such as fruits and vegetables, this style of garden also includes herbs that can be grown for culinary, medicinal, and crafting purposes, as well as foraging.

Livestock such as chickens, cows and pigs are included as they not only produce eggs and meat, but also give the added benefits of fresh manure to use in composting.

Get ready to learn not only how to grow a survival garden, but why you should and how you can adapt it when your space is limited.
