By having a survival garden as part of your emergency preparedness, you will be able to provide your family with fresh produce without having to rely on help from outside sources.
Of course, one option is to try and build a food stockpile that includes enough store bought canned vegetables to last our family for a while. This is a good idea, but if you have a survival vegetable garden, then you will have an ongoing source of food.
Another benefit is that the food that you grow, gather and can yourself will probably be much healthier than store bought canned goods. That is because you can control the amount of salt that is used and you will not have to worry about additives.
Also, with store bought food, you don’t know how long the produce lingered before being canned. The longer the food sites on a shelf, the less nutritional value it will give to those who consume it.
A survival garden is one way to make sure that your family will be cared for during various types of emergency situations. If you start your garden now, you can eat some of each harvest, and store some for emergencies.
