Prepping community near Asheville NC

Postby bernie » Thu Sep 01, 2011 5:32 pm

Bernie saying hi....Sandy and I have been working on survival type stuff for ourselves and others for quite a few years now on our Farm turned sustainable community. Right now we have a clear water source, a couple acres of organic garden area by the creek, meadows and a lot of woods, fruit trees, south facing land for that wonderful solar gain, great roads, etc. Our prepping will include an organic free range chicken area away from homes, and we're thinking that bee hives and a rabbit run may be important in the near future. We have lots too and expect, at some point soon, that they will all be filled with like minded folks. I grew up on a farm in Iowa, graduated from the U. of Iowa, then combat in Vietnam, met a lovely lady still my better half, and worked in Miami/Coral Gables for 15 years. Not really politically minded, I know that we have to fend for ourselves (just because the way the earth and universe is right now), find out who we are, :) always be kind and considerate, and embrace all kinds of well-intended opinions. If you have any questions on what we are doing or suggestions on some additional preparations, just Email me - it probably isn't koser to give you our website here..........one way or the other we are all in this together - some of us are just choosing to be more proactive.......Bernie :) :)

Welcome to the forum, Bernie and Sandy. You may post a personal blog or website and put it in your signature line. Commercial postings are okay if you contact North Idaho Patriot and sign up as a sponsor for about $5/mo. I am interested in all you have done to create a sustainable lifestyle. We have done something similar and are still working at it.

vina8..........there is some universal energetic support for the "8" you use with Vina. In Keylontic Science it is symbolic of the energetic force of the universe that spirals as a way of creating and sustaining life. I'd be interested in what you've done too and thanks for the blog and website recommendations - will look into that and check out your blog too. Our website is www.ashevillemountainlots.com if you want to take a look.

Donna,

Nice knowing that we have your company right here in NC that folks can buy organic grain and supplies from - we will recommend you when we know of others who need supplies and also to those who buy lots here at Mountain Meadows! Excellent job on your website as I just took a quick look. Sandy and I bought a 6 months supply of grains last year to go along with our other prepping methods. I am making a note to look at your website more fully upon returning to our Farm today.

Thanks for all your work in helping us all to eat more healthily through organic options and help in food storage, as well!! What area in NC are you from, Donna?

Hi Bernie and Sandy, sounds like you have a really nice homestead. I'm just west of you in Waynesville area and new to prepping so very glad to meet other like minded folks. I'm in town and only on 1/2 acre but doing what I can to start maximizing the land and be more efficient. I think community, friends and family will be vital to surviving any emergency, strength in numbers as they say. Welcome.

How does it feel to be the official "WNC Prepper1?" 1/2 acre is plenty to do what you need to do and you have the in-town community. A singular water source, food source, south facing land, and seed storage seem to be pretty vital components along with a supply of survival food like grains, beans, and honey. Good to have you in WNC too!
