Most mass media hypnotized urban dwellers know very little about survival skills. There are basics of natural health and survival that even children should know. There are helpful plants that may be growing in your yard that could provide food, protection and other benefits. This knowledge could be crucial in an emergency situation. An exploration of fields and woods is very worthwhile, to learn to identify nature’s problems like poison ivy, ticks, stinging insects and sunburn, as well as edible plants and medicinal herbs.

I had a great time getting to meet Abby personally when I persuaded her to come and teach at one of our local Preparedness Meetings. Her style of teaching was so 'hands on' even for a classroom setting that everyone walked away learning so much - and she has so much MORE to share!
Listen to this episode and get in contact with Abby to learn even more of what the forest provides for us!

Don Dennis born in California in 1956, but came over to the UK when I was 19 to attend a school founded by J. Krishnamurti.returned to the US to attend college, and went to St. John's College in Santa Fe NM for just over 2 years before transferring to Marlboro College in Vermont, where I got my Bachelor's Degree in Ancient Greek Literature and English Literature.I returned to England to teach at Brockwood Park, the school that had first drawn me over here as a student. After 3 years teaching, I then got married, left Brockwood, and ended up becoming a wood turner, making wooden bowls. I then founded a small timber (lumber) business with a nearby cabinetmaker, after a hurricane blew down 17 million trees in our part of SE England. During the 9 years of that business I was heavily involved in sustainable forestry issues, and participated in the founding of the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC), a body which helps to certify and promote truly sustainable forestry practise globally.However, when I first arrived at Brockwood Park nearly 40 years ago now, I was introduced to the Bach Flower Remedies. These intrigued me, and over the years I had many conversations with people in the UK about these products, though I could not have claimed at that time to understand them well at all. But my simmering interest became suddenly very powerful when I learnt that there were other flower essences being made in other parts of the world, using the same technique that Dr. Bach had employed in the 1930's...My response to discovering this outrageous behaviour was to start my own essence-importing business, to provide an ethical alternative to these others. That was how the International Flower Essence Repertoire got started, in 1985 See Creative Consciousness Guest Blog
