Garden or Die: Your Urban Survival Oasis

You don’t have to have acreage in the wild to grow your own survival garden—just tell them Rob Raskin of Las Vegas said so! You can grow food anywhere you happen to be, as long as you have the right equipment and you have taken the time to make sure you are prepared.

 

There are benefits to growing a garden indoors, such as the plants being protected from inclement weather and the ability to transition to a more self-reliant lifestyle even if you are not yet ready to fully make your move off the grid. This is also a fantastic way to grow your own food in an area where the soil isn’t nutrient rich enough to support growth.

 

Even if you are a novice gardener, this is an incredible option that can help you to supplement your food supply. There are containers made especially for the purpose of indoor gardening, but it is not necessary to invest in these because there are many other containers that you can find inexpensively that will work just as well. In fact, you can use many items you’ll find around your house for free like food containers and common plastic grocery bags. And we all know how easy it is to amass a huge pile of those!

 

What You’ll Need to Get Started

Your container gardening starter kit should contain:

  • Nutrient-rich soil that is meant for the type of plant you wish to grow
  • An area with sufficient sun exposure
  • Seeds for plants that are suitable for container gardening
  • Adequate time to devote to your garden to make sure it’ll thrive

 

With a little time, patience, and research, you’ll have your own garden in no time! While it may not produce enough food for you rely on it completely, it’s a great start and a step in the right direction. This is Rob Raskin, wishing you happy homesteading—even if you’re in the middle of the city!

Hydroponics for Survival

Hello again, Rob Raskin of Las Vegas here to talk about growing plants indoors. In any emergency situation, the ability to survive without relying on the outside economy can make all the difference between whether or not you survive or fail. Any event can disrupt modern supply chains, and depending on what caused the emergency, it may not be safe to go outside. A biological, chemical or radiological attack can contaminate a wide area for years and could isolate you from much of the outside world. Learning how to grow plants indoors is a vital skill that can give you a leg up against the competition and could make the difference between your success and failure.

Using Pots

One of the easiest ways to grow plants indoors is to use some pots. There’s really no limit to how many you can have inside your home aside from the space you have available. You can use a few large pots, some trellises for plants with runners, or tall racks with long pots. These can make the most out of the space you have if you plan on intensively farming indoors. You will want to make sure that you can get enough light for your plants. In addition, you will need to keep them well-watered, which can introduce molding problems if you are not careful, due to increased humidity.

Building a Greenhouse

If you are set on launching a bigger indoor growing operation, you’ll want to invest in a separate greenhouse. Building one can be a relatively simple matter of finding a bit of land you can set aside and deciding on what kind of greenhouse you would like. There are several different varieties that you can choose from. You can find a relatively simple, disposal one at many home hardware stores or gardening stores. However, if you want to create a more elaborate construction, you’ll need to build a wood or PVC frame, find a ventilation system to filter out contaminants, obtain a power supply, and also install an irrigation system. While a disposable greenhouse can cost $100 or less, a more elaborate one can easily cost somewhere in the five figures.

Deciding on the best ways to grow food before a crisis hits can help you better survive one with the right tools. Starting ahead of time is the best way to prepare yourself for any crisis that may occur.
