While I’m not a crazy “doomsday prepper,” I do think it’s important to have an emergency plan for different situations. I also think that everyone should know some basic survival skills– just in case. Some of those skills include cooking, gardening, foraging, hunting, fishing, etc. It’s important to be able to feed yourself in case you can’t get to the grocery store. A great way to be more self-sustainable is to have your own food garden with lots of veggies and fruits. However, there are also tons of plants that grow in the wild that are edible for humans. You probably already have some in your yard! For a list of wild plants and their uses, check out this post by Suntactics at My Family Survival Plan. You might even want to start growing a few of them on purpose! Of course, you should also always consult a doctor before trying any of these.
