Over at This Dad Does, there’s a very nice review of my latest book Grow or Die: The Good Guide to Survival Gardening:
Lots of food.
And if you need a lot of food, you have to know how to grow it. Once you’ve mastered this, you can sit back, safe in the knowledge that you can survive decades of international turmoil and societal breakdown.
Grow or Die: The Good Guide to Survival Gardening by David the Good will give you all the knowledge and metaphorical tools to survive even the most serious economic meltdown.
David the Good is a well known published author, blogger and survival gardening expert.
His blog The Survival Gardener is one of the most popular on self sufficiency and small holding while his YouTube channel has nearly 2000 subscribers.
The author is one of these guys who’s knowledge on his subject should be measured in libraries. But you can buy Grow or Die on Kindle for a few quid – a good investment given the uncertain times we live in.
By the time you’ve finished you’ll have the tools to:
- Grow high calorie foods which store easily
- Preserve your crops through the winter
- Make your own fertiliser and compost
- Improve irrigation and control pests
There’s also a useful ‘post-Event’ Emergency Quick Start Guide for when you pick up David’s book a little too late in the post-apocalyptic future.
The book is a lot of fun and is a mix of fantasy and practical gardening advice. Even if you’re not a Doomsday Prepper, you’ll find a lot of useful knowledge to get started on your survival garden.
I don’t want to go into details about all of the techniques and tips in this book so here are my highlights.
There’s quite a bit more on the site – go click here to read it.
