Are You Prepared?

Living in the Pacific NW, I am constantly reminded of the looming chance of a large earthquake.  Because of this, emergency preparedness has been a recent topic in my home and community.

Have you thought about what you'd do if you didn't have access to food from your local grocery store, the farmer's market, or your weekly CSA share?  Do you know how to grow any food yourself?  How can you build relationships now with your neighbors and community to grow and share food and other resources?  These questions are more easily answered now than in a disaster situation.

Keeping a supply of water and non-perishable food on hand is recommended for emergency preparedness, but having fresh fruits, vegetables, herbs, eggs, honey, etc. available in your own garden can help keep you fed now and in a time of need (whether it's due to a reduced income, natural disaster, or any other hardship).

Daily Harvest Designs weaves food, medicine, shelter, water storage, and more into beautiful and functional landscapes.  This makes it easy to incorporate food into your landscape while maintaining a beautiful and functional yard.  You will be eating well now and may even be thanking yourself for it in the future.

I'd love to work with you to check "home-grown food" off your emergency preparedness list.
