There are a ton of different things that can happen to a garden. Tragedy can befall all of your growing spaces in a hurry.
It is for this reason that we grow in raised beds and we grow pots. You might also like this idea about a DIY mini garden oasis.

These are just as much a project as they are a garden. They are an opportunity to learn a new skill.
You will find that you are growing all kinds of water-loving plants. You will see that plants, like these, might be great for ducks to eat on. Maybe your journey into these mini water gardens becomes the first step into adding ducks to your land.

The Mental Strength to Survive
This might seem like it’s in the wrong place but washing out the mind is important. Few of us ever take the time to really sit down and stop the world around us. When we are stuck in this Doomsday mindset all the time it can be very destructive on our psyche.
These simple water gardens are not DOOMSDAY FOOD FORESTS THAT WILL FEED YOUR FAMILY but they are very effective and enjoyable breaks from the day. You might not think that a break like that is an important survival tool.
The interesting thing about these little gardens and the DIY projects that they present is that they can become a little break of their own.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It’s made of lean, dried meat that’s crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call “survival skills” now.
