Survival and preparedness is on the rise today, and for many Americans, that means looking to the past for guidance. For example, how did our ancestors survive, with next to nothing, during tough times?
On this week’s edition of Off The Grid Radio we examine survival during the Great Depression with survival expert, blogger and author Lisa Bedford, who has studied how our grandparents and great-grandparents not only endured the 1920s and 30s but actually thrived.
Lisa, the author of “Survival Mom” and “Worst Case Scenarios and Emergency Evacuations,” tells us:
- How people during the Great Depression made money when there seemingly were no jobs available.
- What unique foods they ate – foods that many Americans would never try.
- How they found food in their yards and the forest, and why we should do the same.
- What they used to sew their own clothes when they couldn’t afford fabric.
- How they repaired shoes, using an overlooked item that all of us own.
Finally, Lisa tells us why people who survived the Great Depression look back on that era so fondly – as if it were the best time of their lives. If you need some survival wisdom and inspiration this week, then this show is for you!
