Long-term survival is planning beyond prepper storage and thinking ahead to a future where there is no infrastructure or stability. A long-term survival garden must feed a family and be completely self-reliant, while producing enough to put aside for the winter. Not only that, your garden must take into account climate change and other events which will change the way plants grow. This planner helps you plan your garden to build up a food supply that will adequately meet your family’s nutritional needs.
