2021 Keynote Speaker – (2022 Keynote -TBD.)
Tom DeWeese – The Wrenching Transformation of America. The Battle for American Freedom – How to Fight Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, The Great Reset, and the Green New Deal, all Coming Soon to Your Community.
Tom DeWeese is the Founder and President of the American Policy Center – one of the nation’s leading advocates of individual liberty, free enterprise, private property rights, personal privacy, back-to-basics education and American sovereignty and independence.
Tom DeWeese was one of the first to voice concern over the radical agenda of the environmental movement and to question its motives. Since 1992 he has been sounding the alarm against the UN’s Agenda 21 and its policy of Sustainable Development as a threat to private property rights, free markets and American sovereignty and independence.
For over 45 years Tom DeWeese has been a businessman, grassroots activist, writer and publisher. As such, he has always advocated a firm belief in man’s need to keep moving forward while protecting our Constitutionally-guaranteed rights.
Tom will discuss Agenda 21, Agenda 2030, and the Green New Deal which are all the same “comprehensive blueprint for the reorganization of Human society,” as the UN originally described Agenda 21 in 1992. Today, that blueprint has been updated to the Great Reset that will devastate the three pillars of freedom, including free enterprise, private property ownership, and individual choice. All of these plans are imposed through the false labels of climate change and sustainable development.
Tom will then show how these policies are imposed at the local level through a coordinated attack by well organized, non-governmental organizations (NGOs). And Tom will show how to build a team in your own community to stand up to, and expose those NGOs, and effectively organize and protect your three pillars of freedom.
2022 Musical Guest – Five Times August
Saturday Night Musical Artist – Five Times August – The Political Protest Songs of Our Times.
Five Times August is the solo act of singer/songwriter Brad Skistimas. Skistimas has appeared on the FOX Business channel as an expert “Do-It-Yourself” indie artist and featured in Billboard Magazine, Performing Songwriter, Guitar Player, People Magazine, and USA Today. He was the first completely unsigned act to have an album distributed in Walmart stores nationwide with 2007’s “The Independent.” The music has been featured on many popular TV shows, commercials, and films and tour dates have supported some of the nation’s top acts.
In early 2021 Five Times August began releasing a series of protest songs taking aim at Covid-era regulations, the Biden administration, and most recently Anthony Fauci with the hit song “Sad Little Man,” which has reached #1 on several Amazon and Apple Music charts.
Several of the music videos for these tracks have been suppressed or censored on social media platforms like YouTube and Facebook. Despite being restricted by big tech recent press includes prominent features on Glenn Beck, Chad Prather, Del Bigtree’s The HighWire, The Federalist, The Post Millennial, RebelNews, and more. Most recently Skistimas performed his song “Silent War” on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial in Washington DC for 35,000 attendees at the Defeat the Mandate rally on January 23rd.
Brad will play some of his most popular protest songs prior to the Key Note address on Saturday Night.

Medicine, Easy Until It Isn’t
This presentation is designed to expand the understanding and depth of knowledge and resources required to deal with life threatening illness or injuries in austere environments for prolonged periods of time. The course is taught from the perspective of natural disaster and wartime disruption in infrastructure and definitive medical care, but easily crosses over to preparedness for any type of disruption in first world services and support networks. All the topics and information covered pick up the timeline after the point of injury or illness when the “first aid” principals, techniques and devices have been utilized. This is the course for those who are asking “Now What” after the tourniquet is applied or they suddenly find a member of the team pregnant or withdrawing from prescription medication, etc.
The course is built around the principals of current prolonged field care standards currently being utilized by special operations medical and expedition medical teams operating globally. I specifically focus on the H.I.T.M.A.N. pneumonic as it applies to preparedness for disaster or significant illness on the homestead or austere environment as well as risk analysis tools and operational planning concepts to solve some of these problems before they happen. We will also dive deep into the physiology of illness, injury and common medical challenges faced outside of readily available medical infrastructure.

Psychological Warfare Class
Many people underestimate the power of psychology when it comes to survival. Sure we understand that in a tough situation mindset is everything. By now we have all heard the phase “survival mindset,” but what does that mean exactly and how do you really create it or use it? The answers to this are overlooked just like the answers to the various aspects of survival. Beyond a wilderness survival situation that pits a person versus nature there is also a situation in both a wilderness and urban survival scenario that could put man versus man. This statement normally brings to mind the idea of physical confrontation. How do you physically defend and combat people that want what you have or that want to hurt you? People are always surprised when I inform them that dealing with confrontation is more about the psychological than the physical. The idea that our lives are physical manifestations of our emotional and mental states and therefore how we interact with the world is determined through these aspects, is commonly over looked. As a Psychological Warfare Sergeant in the US Army I saw how powerful Psychological Warfare could be effective in the buildup or destruction of a community. This was especially evident during and after a war which is the epitome of survival situation. People are looking for food, shelter, water, security, and cause. Each one of these aspects is not just a physical need, but a mental and emotional one as well. Understanding the root cause of these needs gives leverage and to some degree, control. Those who understand how to use this leverage in essence learn to fight without fighting.
In my classes I help people understand the many dynamics of human emotional and mental defaults and characteristics. Students gain an emotional intelligence that gives them the ability to deal with the angry, needy, desperate, and violent that will be encounters during a short or long term disaster. In addition the goal is to help people understand how not to allow their own weaknesses to trap/be used against them by emotionally intelligent influencers that may seek to take advantage of them. I also show how to identify the psychological aspects of those who are trying to take advantage and those who can be potential allies if you understand who they are and how they operate. Psychological warfare is a powerful tool that is underrated in its importance to help people maintain control, order and safety during a disaster or high risk situation. Those throughout history who knew how to use it wisely found themselves as leaders of countries and sometimes destroyers of communities. The war around you is easier to control if you understand the mindset of the players within it. This is the foundation of Psyop.

The overall focus of the 1 hour session will be: Doing the Proper Maintenance, Learning the Proper Skills, Having The Propers Tools & Stocking The Proper Parts. I will break down the main systems of the home, and talk about the most common repairs a prepper can learn, in order to handle the most likely household emergencies.
Since 2005, more than 89,000 structures have been destroyed by wildfires resulting in an untold number of fatalities, evacuations, and personal losses. Drawing from over 20 years of wildland firefighting experience, Andrew Herrington will outline the steps to protect your retreat and community, along with the resources, gear, and techniques to fight the threat if needed. Andrew’s eyes were opened the first time he triaged homes on a Western fire detail and again on the front lines of the Gatlinburg Firestorm. Lessons from those experiences were directly incorporated into the construction and wildland fire defense plan for his own home and have been tested during a recent wildfire in his community.
Secret Garden of Survival- How to Grow a Camouflaged Food-Forest
Rick Austin- The Survivalist Gardener
Imagine a food garden that you only have to plant once in your life-time, that takes up very little space, that will provide food for you and your family for the next 30 years; that can grow five times more food per square foot than traditional or commercial gardening; and where you never have to weed, never have to use fertilizers and never have to use pesticide– ever.
And the whole garden is disguised to look like overgrown underbrush, so that anyone passing by would not even dream that you had food growing there!
It’s the essential prepper food source that can provide you with all the fruit, vegetables, nuts and berries, that you and your family can consume in a year.
Secret Greenhouse of Survival- How to Build the Ultimate Homestead & Prepper Greenhouse
(This class will now be combined with the Secret Garden of Survival Presentation.)
Rick Austin- The Survivalist Gardener
Imagine a greenhouse that heats your home in the winter; and heats your water; that grows five times more food per sq. ft. than a hoop house; that provides food for you and your family all year long; where your food grows in 3 dimensions; where you never have to use fertilizer; where you never have to use pesticide, and where you can grow exotic foods, i.e. citrus or coffee trees in New England); that allows you to start seedlings in the spring; that hides your solar electric system; and that can house your small animals or incubate chickens and ducks.
All disguised to look like a porch on your home, so that desperate and hungry passersby would have no idea that you have food growing there.
Secret Livestock of Survival- How to Raise the 10 Best Choices for Retreat and Homestead Livestock
Rick Austin- The Survivalist Gardener
Protein should be a big portion of your diet in a homestead or retreat situation. Many traditional farm animals are not a good choice for the small homestead or for the prepper trying to remain undetected. (Hint- Roosters crowing are a dead giveaway to your location.) Find out what animals are the least amount of work for you, and give you the highest return on your investment of money, time and resources. And find out which livestock animals are the most discreet- so they won’t give away your location!

Survival, Evasion, Resistance, and Escape (SERE)
SERE is a training program that prepares U.S. military personnel, U.S. Department of Defense civilians, and private military contractors to survive and “return with honor” in survival scenarios. The curriculum includes survival skills, evading capture, application of the military code of conduct, and techniques for escape from captivity. A typical scenario involves exiting a vehicle, such as an aircraft or ship. Egress is followed by running from enemy forces, toward some pre-planned recovery point. Upon capture, many kinds of interrogation methods may be used to extract useful information from the captive. Both physical and psychological effects are employed. Finding the right moment to make your break is critical to fighting another day. All aspects of SERE may not be used, but a holistic approach provides the best solution.
While prescribed for a military environment, SERE principles can be applied to other circumstances as well, including emergencies resulting from a failure of civility. Surviving in the woods alone using knowledge of bushcraft is different from protecting your neighborhood group from an attacking gang. And if those same gang members are pursuing you for your scarce resources, you are in no less danger than from al Qaeda warriors. You may not be subject to a legal code, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t certain obligations you have to those nearest to you. And finally, if you are so unfortunate as to be taken by really bad people, then your life may depend on getting away from them as quickly as possible. Join us for a unique discussion forum. Perhaps you’ll discover a new formula for your preparedness planning.
Survivor Jane’s Prepping Priorities Class

The Female Shooter
In this presentation, Nicolle will cover major concerns and considerations that female shooters routinely face. She will cover the basics of shooting your handgun, plus different manners to carry your pistol every day. Even shooters who have been shooting for twenty or more years still routinely fail to master the fundamentals of safe, and effective Gun Handling because they have never received proper Instruction. If you don’t understand and practice the Basics, you will never be as proficient as you could be. Nicolle will cover the proper grip, stance, trigger manipulation, proper drawing your handgun, and many more important aspects and considerations involved in your EDC weapon. She will also cover the requirements to acquire your NC Concealed Carry Handgun Permit, and why it is so important. It is your responsibility to be capable of defending yourself, and your family. Seconds count when the LEOs are minutes away.
The Trained Protection Dog – A Prepper’s Best Friend –And Best Security Asset.
Rising crime rates and social unrest are enough to make anyone want to increase their security. Electronic security measures are great…until the electricity goes out. A gun is good, but will it help you when there are multiple attackers? What is the one security asset (with lots of other benefits as well) that can help with multiple attackers, never needs electricity, doesn’t run out of ammunition and will be your best battle buddy till the end? THE DOG.
Come hear the many benefits a dog can add to your security spectrum from how to deal with the reality of a hostile confrontation to what happens to your defensive plans as soon as the fighting starts, to how the dog fills the HUGE gap between fighting with your hands and using deadly force. Do you need Security for you or your family while you’re gone? The dog may be the what you’ve been looking for.
Trapping Game and Predators
The most upsetting thing for someone going through the trouble, time and effort, to raise their own food, is when you go to pick your bounty, and you find that some varmint has already beaten you to it!
So groundhogs, rabbits, raccoons, opossums, squirrels and the like, need to be kept in check.
Then there is the beaver that can take a fruit tree that took you years to grow, down in one night !!! They can also flood fields, and block culverts that can washout roads.
And fox, coyote, bobcats, and other predators, can devastate your chickens, ducks, rabbits, and goats in a matter of minutes.
When the SHTF you do not need the added work or loss of your hard earned resources.
And a trapped animal’s meat, fur and leather is an added benefit.
This is a practical trapping class, with hands-on demonstrations, on the ground, by the Back Bayou Tent.
Trauma Tools Workshop
This is a hands-on presentation of the primary life-saving tools used by military members and professional first responders in the field. These purpose-built devices will provide you with the ability to stabilize serious bleeding and breathing injuries before trained responders arrive on the scene. Without oxygen, a bleeding/breathing victim has about ten minutes to live. Since the average EMS response time is seven minutes, he has at best a 30% survival rate under normal conditions. Therefore, every step you take immediately could dramatically increase someone’s chances to live. The main point is that you don’t have time to wait for someone else to respond and take action. If you choose to accept it, that responsibility falls on you.
During the workshop, we will discuss the importance of blood to the human body and the impact of serious bleeding on bodily functions. Then we will consider types of bleeding and the methods of addressing each. Several tourniquet options will be demonstrated. We will consider other applications as well, including pressure dressings, chest seals, and clotting agents. Finally, we will discuss breathing trauma and how to effectively address conditions arising from obstructions and disruptions. Your take away from this workshop will be an increased understanding of your role as a first responder. And combined with complete trauma kits, as well as the components found at the GetReady! booth, you will be confident in your basic lifesaving ability.
Unique and Efficient Every Day Carry (EDC) – It’s More Than Just a Firearm!
In this class we will discuss what you should be carrying on your body, every day, and it’s not just a firearm!
In this class we will talk about unique, simple and efficient things to carry, that you probably have not thought of, that can get you to safety, to your vehicle, and to your bug out bag. (The Bug Out Bag/ Go Bag class is a separate class, because there are different items you can carry in your Bug Out Bag/Go Bag, that you cannot carry on your person.)
We will examine the different purposes for your EDC. We will discuss various levels of alert and how to change what you carry to suit those different levels. And we will discuss the suitability of what you carry to your age, gender, size, health, and purpose.
Using Every Day Carry items and building a Bug Out Bag/ Go Bag are the most logical and least overwhelming place to start your preparation plans.
Urban Survival – No Matter What.
This class focuses on steps you can take to protect yourself in an urban environment in today’s society and a disaster scenario. If society maintains its balance, there are still steps you can take to secure your castle. You need defensible space, a plan for when things go wrong, and, yes, proper insurance coverage. Around your home, you have private and public spaces. Can you manage the traffic? When threats, either human-made or natural, are imminent, you have to weigh the decision to stay or go carefully. Knowing you have covered all of your bases before this happens can make this decision much more manageable.
In the event of a collapse, it is essential that you understand how to be a gray man and blend in. You don’t want others to know you are thriving while they are starving. Finding food and water in an urban environment post-collapse takes careful thought now to know what to do then. Your defensive strategies should be covert, and often your best decision may be to blend into a mob rather than fight the tide. You will need strength in numbers. A family of four can’t defend itself in an urban landscape. After attending this class, you will understand how to survive in an urban environment today and tomorrow.
Using a Combat Shovel/Entrenching Tool for Self Defense
For many years the e-tool (entrenching tool) was a fall back hand to hand combat weapon that proved to be invaluable in the field of battle. Not only was it extremely useful as an all around utility tool. When things got hairy many lives were saved and lost with its use as a fighting weapon. The shovel became so useful in combat that many military forces built combative systems around the employment of them. In today’s world we may not use them on the battlefield as much, but any hiker or outdoors person can tell you how amazing e-tools are as a utility tool. However, with the inherent dangers of hiking and being off in the wilderness alone there is always a possibility that one could have to defend themselves against animals or people. For that reason having the ability to use any tool as a defensive weapon is important. This combat shovel class will be fun, easy to follow and full of information that will teach you the basics of how to put your e-tool/small shovel to use as a defensive tool.
Utilizing Fibers For Homesteading and Survival
Fiber, such as wool, is a resource that people pay little attention to in today’s time. Natural fiber items are even less understood and almost considered an oddity with the number of synthetic products now in circulation. Having the ability and skill to make your own clothing could make or break a family or group during tough time. Gloves, hats, shirts, sweaters, underwear everyday things that we take for granted could have a huge impact on our lives and make an individual quite vulnerable.
This class will discuss the sources in which fibers come from, be it animal, plant or even insect. This will cover many of the main types of sources and the multiple uses for them in the prepper and homesteading lifestyle.
You will get to see first-hand the type of equipment that are ideal. As well as getting to see and handle some of the fibers up-close. I will also present and show how these fibers can be used and handled in its final process. You will leave with simple set of plans to build your own drop spindle. We will also discuss the how to begin in your new fiber adventure.
This class will allow you to walk away with a whole new view on this great resource.

Your Body Is A Weapon – Everybody’s Self Defense Class
Your body is your number one weapon. There are numerous circumstances where your body may be your last line of defense, and you need to be ready to protect yourself. This class focuses on every age group, any sex, and any fitness level. We begin with the background basics of fitness, concentrating on improving that readiness level. Advancing to the next stage should always be the goal. During the class, we will discuss proper nutrition for maintaining an adequate preparedness level. Pain is an excuse for many individuals, so we will explore methods for reducing pain and inflammation that can hold an individual back.
Then we will explore how appearance and situational awareness can make or break you in a self-defense situation. It is essential to know your limits due to your age and prior fitness levels. You need to be able to assess your opponents’ abilities based upon their age and appearance. Knowing how to handle adrenal stress and getting practice at controlling the body’s response is another critical aspect we will explore. Then we will learn some useful tips on how to escape and evade an abduction. Plus, explore the basics of wielding and defending against a bladed weapon attack. Finally, we get into some hands-on practice focusing on learning a few moves very well rather than many movements, not so well.
The instructor, Sara Hathaway, grew up a country girl, shooting rifles and bowhunting. She began training martial arts in 2002 in a form called Kuk Sool Won. A fellow student introduced her to the sport of Taekwondo. Her training continued in the disciplines of Kuk Sool Won, Kukkiwon style Taekwondo and Moo Duk Kwon style Taekwondo. In 2007 Sara earned her black belt from Master Instructor John Jonghan Yi. As an individual concerned about disaster preparedness and self-defense, she realized Taekwondo was much more than a sport, and in 2010 she began training with Chief Master Dan Lovas at The Auburn Martial Arts Center. Sara trained off and on at the studio during the next few years and obtained her third-degree blackbelt in Taekwondo. During this time, she also participated in close quarters combat training with a private instructor, Doug Huffman. Sara has become one of six women ever to pass Dan Lovas’s jujitsu test and trained Sport-jujitsu as well. Currently, Sara is training in MMA at Precision Jujitsu, concentrating that training on street fighting rather than cage fighting.

The New Calendar
So you’ve got your supplies, your rice, your guns, and your homestead. But when society collapses, who’s going to print you a new calendar every year? Society is built around the calendar and concept of time, so when SHTF better have time on your side. Resources will be scarce, so the ability to re-print another Gregorian Calendar every year on a 6-11-11 year cycle will be a luxury few will have. You need a re-usable, sustainable system that keeps you naturally attuned to the Earth’s annual orbital rotation. You need the latest, most cutting edge scientific technological developments in the field of timekeeping. You need The New Calendar. American Engineered in 2017, not mandated by the Pope in 1582.
There is a reason a ruler is a word meaning both a measurement device and a king. After SHTF make sure you control time, or someone else will. Don’t rely on the Gregorian Calendar to get you through the collapse of society — its part of the problem that got us in this mess! The New Calendar is the ONLY APOCALYPSE-PROOF calendar system available! It’s re-usable, provides consistent, precise and accurate measurements, and contains useful information to aid your homestead operations and survival organization.
We also have a cache of vintage 1960’s “Fall-Out Shelter” signs.

Author Sara F. Hathaway
Author Sara F. Hathaway has dedicated her life to educating individuals about the importance of maintaining a relationship with nature, living a preparedness lifestyle, and the critical role of fitness in that equation. Drawing on her experiences growing up and living in rural America, her insatiable urge to learn has culminated into a vast knowledge base. She shares this information on a weekly podcast, The Changing Earth Podcast, and her online survival guide database at ChangingEarthSeries.com. Sara first entered the spotlight in 2014 when she published the first novel in her eight-book series, The Changing Earth Series. Sara designed the stories to educate readers about essential survival skills while providing riveting entertainment.
The Changing Earth Series is a set of post-apocalyptic adventures that will have you on the edge of your seat! The stories follow Erika Moore, a young woman, wife, and mother, as she navigates a world torn apart by a rapidly changing planet. Her journey begins in Day After Disaster when an unforeseen disaster rocks the world. The next three novels in the series address the government’s response to the catastrophes and the personal freedoms citizens are losing as the world continues to alter the reality of the survivors. Fundamental changes destroy The United States of America in the fifth novel, Dark Days in Denver. As the Federal Republic of America forms, dictators declare supreme rule over the land and people. The final three books in the series explore the struggle for human existence against these monarchs and a planet rapidly reshaping itself. The novel Swenson accompanies the last four books in the series and brings the tyrant TJ Swenson to life.

Wolf-Fire Firearms Instruction and Survival Training
Dave (often called “Wolf”) is a native to North Carolina. He qualified as “Expert” with the rifle, pistol and shotgun, among other weapon systems, in both the US Army and Air Force. During his time in the military, Dave, was recruited to instruct other soldiers and airmen skills and techniques which enabled them to qualify for their rifle and pistol qualifications. Dave also has experience working with the Emergency Response Team (the military’s version of a SWAT Team). He also served on the Combat Search and Rescue Teams and instructed (SERE) Survival, Evade, Resistance, and Escape training while stationed overseas. He brings this unique Skill-Set to his classes covering both Firearms and Survival with real-world experience.
Van Sickel Books- Timothy Van Sickel – Author
He has desired to write a book in the post-apocalyptic genre for several years, but could never get the setting right. In late winter of 2016, the right venue was revealed to Tim, and in his words, “God inspired me to right this novel.” Before that day was over, the main characters had been developed and the story line was set. He wrote the first chapter that night and has not quit writing since. Tim has invested the time and expense of having his books professionally edited. You will find his works captivating and challenging in their realism. You will literally think, “My God, this could really happen,” as you read this descriptive saga of societal collapse after an EMP strike.
Wild Abundance is a school that teaches skills for self-sufficiency and survival. We’re based in North Carolina, just outside of Asheville. We offer both in-person and online classes. Our instructors have been practicing land-based living skills for decades. Our goal is to share these skills with everyone who wants to learn them.
Classes include: hide tanning (wet-scrape, brain tan method), natural building, tiny houses, herbal medicine and wild foods, primitive skills, and permaculture design. Classes range from a few days to over a week long. We offer the world’s first online hide tanning class to students around the world. It’s an extremely thorough and well-produced video-based course that will help anyone successfully make their own buckskin from a deer hide.
Prepper Press – Aden Tate – Author
Aden Tate is a part-time farmer – specializing in eggs, greens, and oyster mushrooms – and a writer when he’s not tending to livestock and crops. He’s a fan of Joel Salatin’s views on farming, Victor Hugo’s novels, and American history when it’s not written by revisionists.
Aden will be releasing his new work of fiction Zombie Choices: An Interactive Story for $15 at Prepper Camp 2020. Think of it as a video game in a book. If you’re familiar with (and liked) the old text-based adventure Oregon Trail, then there’s a good chance that you’ll enjoy Zombie Choices. Aden Tate is also the author of The Faithful Prepper: A Christian’s Perspective on Prepping, which takes a look at how prepping meshes with the Christian faith, examines whether or not prepping is a lack of faith in God, and looks at a number of other post-disaster scenarios.
Survivor Jane – Author, SurvivorJane.com
Survivor Jane is city-girl turned prepper/homesteader – moving to the Appalachian Mountains from Central Florida. She is the creator and editor of the survival preparedness website www.SurvivorJane.com with a mission to educate others on how to better be prepared, by sharing her experiences and research in an easy to understand conversational format on various preparedness topics.
After noticing what seemed to be a lack of focus in personal hygiene and cleanliness in other’s preparedness plans, Jane authored the “Survivor Jane’s Guide to: Emergency/Survival Hygiene – A Prepper Cookbook on Making Survival Hygiene Products”.
In her new book, “What Could Possibly Go Wrong??? – How to Go from Completely Clueless to Totally Prepared” Jane’s focus is on the normalcy bias of women in today’s society and how they can overcome this bias (although the book can certainly apply to anyone.)
You can buy Jane’s books on amazon, and also at Aden Tate’s Prepper Press at Prepper Camp.
To find out more about Jane or to contact her go to her website ( www.survivorjane.com ) for all her book and contact links.
Rick Austin the Survivalist Gardener, Secret Garden of Survival
Secret Garden of Survival-How to grow a camouflaged food-forest.
Imagine a food garden that you only have to plant once in your life-time, that takes up very little space, that will provide food for you and your family for the next 30 years; that can grow five times more food per square foot than traditional or commercial gardening; and where you never have to weed, never have to use fertilizers and never have to use pesticide– ever.
And the whole garden is disguised to look like overgrown underbrush, so that anyone passing by would not even dream that you had food growing there!
Find out how Rick Austin took a half-acre southern slope in North Carolina and turned it from red clay into a “food forest” in one year.
Secret Greenhouse of Survival-How to Build the Ultimate Homestead & Prepper Greenhouse.
This is the ultimate sustainable greenhouse, but purposely doesn’t look like it.
Imagine a greenhouse that heats your home in the winter; and heats your home’s water; that grows five times more food per sq. ft. than a hoop house; that provides food for you and your family all year long; where your food grows in 3 dimensions; where you never have to use fertilizer; where you never have to use pesticide, and where you can grow exotic foods, i.e. citrus or coffee trees in New England); that allows you to start seedlings in the spring; that hides your solar electric system; and that can house your small animals or incubate chickens and ducks.
All disguised to look like a porch on your home, so that desperate and hungry passersby would have no idea that you have food growing there.
Find out how you can build a greenhouse that does all that.
Secret Livestock of Survival – How to Raise the Very Best Choices for Retreat and Homestead Livestock.
When most people think of raising homestead livestock, they invariably think that they must have chickens and a cow. But truth be told, when it comes to raising livestock, there are a lot of reasons to avoid raising chickens altogether, and almost every reason not to own a cow.
Just like in my previous two books in this series (the Secret Garden of Survival and the Secret Greenhouse of Survival), this new book, the Secret Livestock of Survival, will show you how to grow your own sources of food (in this case- protein), with a much better return on your investment of time, money, feed, housing and real estate, than with traditional homestead thinking. And these livestock animals are discrete, so most people won’t even know you are raising them.
If you are serious about raising livestock, whether you are an existing homesteader, or just getting started, this book will save you many hundreds of times what it costs you to buy. (And the information contained in this book, can easily replace the need for you to buy about 10 other livestock books.)
All these books are available on Amazon.com, or at the Prepper Press Booth here at Prepper Camp.

US Law Shield is a member benefit program providing legal defense for self defense to any US Law Shield member. We provide legal defense for any criminal action arising out of a self defense incident involving a member.

We also cover defense of any civil litigation arising from a self-defense incident.
US Law Shield was formed in 2009 by a group of criminal defense attorneys in Houston Texas to protect the “good guys” who exercised their right to defend themselves, and found themselves on the wrong side of the judicial system. As 2nd amendment and citizens rights advocates, US Law Shield is now over 400,000 members and growing daily. Take a look, visit our booth and see how US Law Shield can protect you when you protect yourself and your loved ones.
