    9:00-10:30PM CT: Self-Reliant Living bySafe Harbor Alliance, hosted by Jim Phillips. Ken and Sharon Patey Stress Elimination and Human Relationships for Survival Just as seeds need the right balance in soil medium, moisture content, and temperature, and plants the proper nutrients and environment to permit full growth and development, all human beings require the kind of physical and emotional environment that will stimulate a love for learning and the freedom to risk and grow. Typically, however, so much priority is given to the physical environment and the tools for enhancing learning that the most critical element—The Right Emotional Climate—is inadvertently overlooked. What causes us to divert our instincts to a survival mode instead of keeping them available for growth and for maximizing our potential? How do we get back in touch with our instincts? What is the best way to deal with stress? Jim Phillips was first introduced to Ken and Sharon Patey in 1984 when he attended one of their classes. Their instruction had a profound effect upon his life. He repeated the course several times and took his wife and children through the classes also. It was from Ken that Jim learned a number of key principles and concepts that he has adapted to his instruction throughout the years. Kenneth H. Patey, the Founder of GrowthClimate, has been a professional educator since 1963. He has taught on both a junior and senior high school level, and on a university level in the United States and in the Middle East. His academic preparation includes a B.S. degree in Child Development, Family Relations, and Sociology, and an M.S. degree in Counseling.

    Caleb Warnock

    Forgotten Skills of Natural Yeast

    Caleb will be discussing the history of natural yeast as well as his introduction to natural yeast and how to get started using it. He and his co-author have spend many hours developing recipes for his new book that will be out in August. Please join us for an exciting preview.

    Guest Profile:

    Caleb Warnock is the author of the national best-seller, “The Forgotten Skills of Self-Sufficiency Used by the Mormon Pioneers.” He also has a full-time job (journalist for the Provo Daily Herald) and several part-time jobs (teaching writing both in person and online classes, book tour and book writing, directing writing conferences, selling pure, non-hybrid seed raised in his own garden, teaching gardening and homemade yeast and self-sufficiency classes).

    Caleb emphatically states that everyone can do something to feed themselves, no matter your schedule or where you live -- a huge farm, a couple of acres, a condo, a rented apartment. He has lived in all of these, and has grown his own food on all of these properties to some degree. If you want to do it, you can.

    Seed Saving “The Three Sisters” – Corn, Beans, Squash, part 2

    Properly homegrown and saved seed is much more vigorous and stores much longer than commercial seed. In addition, you can grow varieties that aren't available commercially. And the price is right!
     
    Carol will continue her interview from last week focusing on beans and squash in discussing how to maintain genetic purity in your seed as well as how to harvest, dry and store your seed properly for self-reliant living.

    Grow Greens That “Good-Times” Gardeners Don’t Think About

    Carol’s focus, in her book and the classes she gives, is aimed at helping people become Resilient Gardeners, just like her.  From Carol we’ll learn about the importance of growing and using the nutrition-packed leafy greens and rediscovering “potherbs.”  Carol’s greens are different than what most “good-times” gardeners grow for their table, skipping over the all too common leaf lettuce, spinach and chard.  Some of her favorites include: shungiku, amaranth greens, Magentaspreen, leaf radishes, Alexanders, pea shoots, onion and garlic greens.  Learn about her perennial leafy greens patch of: Egyptian onions, perennial multiplier onions, lovage, horseradish leaf, sorrel, and Scorzonera greens.  Her table greens also include many of what a typical “good-times” gardener will call weeds: dandelion, chicory, lambsquarters, nettles and purslane.

    Living in Winter with Little or No Heat in the Home

    Attitude is the most important survival tool that you have in order to make it through tough times. It’s not what you own that will ultimately get you through very hard times, rather it is first what is in your head and heart that will determine the outcome.

    Connie and Jim have been learning about attitude and approaches to living in winter with little or no heat while living in their camping trailer parked at the construction site of their new home. Although they do have propane heat available, they have chosen to use this opportunity to learn valuable knowledge. Their experiences and insight will be invaluable in helping others prepare for times when people’s lifestyle may change dramatically due to long-term loss of utilities and other services.
    Jim Cheney is by profession a software development engineer; however, he has a very broad background in a number of professional fields.  He’s had his own enterprise designing, building and delivering small portable solar-electric packages.  He is always experimenting and trying new things to make life safer and more enjoyable in the event of emergencies of all types.

    Connie Cheney is a housewife and grandmother who enjoys working with her husband on their preparedness projects. 
     
    You will remember them from an earlier program we did here that is now a YouTube video series: “What Others Say About Winter Without Worries.”  If you watch that You Tube video, you will understand just how committed they are in learning how to be okay no matter what.
