The Preparedness Theme for August is again Food, just like July. Since you will want to both store a lot of food, and have planns to be able to grow your own food we feel it is important to have two months in a row. This month, continue adding to your storage and gardening plans but also think about protien. In my area this is difficult since it is currently illegal for us to have our own chickens and we don’t quite have enough land for Rabbits. We can store protien based foods such as canned foods or freeze dried meats and such. So a possibility here could also be to work on your hunting skills, or equipment to be able to hunt or fish.
