Paul Stamets used mushrooms to treat his terminally ill mother. She was denied surgery for breast cancer because the doctors did not think she would survive the procedure. Dr Stamets has a list of other mushrooms that boost the immune system and one that has promise as a treatment for Alzheimer’s. If you learned what he has to offer, you would have something that would not only benefit your destination prepping community but also serve as a useful bargaining chip with outsiders if things did go south for a season or two.
If you knew what Dr Elaine Ingham knew, you could raise crops on land that had suffered a terrible drought for 27 years. She was a Microbiologist who had attended an international conference where she gave a scientific paper proving that plans made by the US EPA and Monsanto to release an artificial microbe into the wild would have killed all plant life on the surface of the earth. Because no good deed should go unpunished the Chairman of her department fired her early in the morning of her first day back at work. Monsanto did not like her.
Dr Ingham went into business doing soil testing. She tests for the Microbiology of the soil. She can increase crop yields 300% and raise food in droughts. I never heard of mycorrhizal fungi until I started studying gardening seriously. Mycorrhizal fungi brings water and food to the plants roots in exchange for carbohydrates made during photosynthesis.
Dr Stamets supplied the US Army with mushroom spores that enabled them to identify smallpox. Americans under 30 have never been exposed to smallpox even as vaccines so we are susceptible to a fast spreading plague similar to the one that killed American Indians by the millions -if you include Latin America.
Paul Stamets also has been cited by gardening gurus as having the best method to improve what most would already consider to be great compost.
My main point is that you can make money prepping if you are prepared. Curtis Stone has been teaching young couples how to make $100,000 a year from 2 acres.
I had suggested to a serious prepper who has several channels that it would be a good idea to find one or two young couples to go ahead to the eventual destination and to start raising food. They can soon each be making $100,000 a year if they first get experience and listen to the wisdom freely available on the Internet.
Raising worms to create vermi or worm composting is a great idea. But there are 43,560 square feet in an acre and 87,120 in 2 acres. One pound of worms produces one pound of really great vermicompost a day or 365 pounds in a year. But 365 pounds spread over 87,120 square feet is not a lot. Worm populations can double in 60 days unless they are all adult breeders so you might need to buy more than one pound of worms. Videos are available on Youtube on vermiculture.
Hint: Do not let your regular compost pile get up to 160 degrees F (71.1 Centigrade.) Below that temperature the compost is building up the good biology you need. Nematodes eat bad bacteria. Mycorrhizal fungi will bring food and water to your plant’s roots. This is the secret to surviving droughts and bacterial outbreaks. If you let the temps go too high, then you kill the beneficial organisms and allow anaerobic bacteria to multiply. That is not good. Dr Ingham has compost demonstrations and lectures on Youtube.

All three have written books.
I might not be posting for a while because my computer is hacked every two hours by an automated system. It is currently not running at all. I might be moving in a month or so. Not sure about that.

BRILLIANT data, particularly Paul Stamets data. Thank you,
I sent away for his books. Mushrooms offer more protein per acre than beef and chickens. They also can be raised in the dark. Ever Googled “year without a summer?” Mushrooms are medicinal and offer profit making opportunities to a bug out location so it is not a money loser. I have never really studied them in depth before.
Interesting, thanks for posting.
??? I don’t get it

Mushrooms as Medicine with Paul Stamets
One of your most valuable posts posts that I have personally seen. imo
There is no greater gift that we humans have than our health which is attacked daily through chemicals, our food sources, and even the fake ‘medicines’ doled out by the graduates of Rockefeller Medicine Men and Big Phama monopoly.
We are constantly under attack also from the poisons in the very air we breathe and pollution. I think it’s one of the biggest factors, along with the total disinterest most of our fellow Americans have. They are completely under the “oh our government just wouldn’t do such things ” spell along with, so many stupid ISMs and disgusting WEIMER degeneration of the soul and body.
I thank you as this source was not under my radar somehow
Take care, we are moving from N Florida also. They want the whole state.
If you have not done so,please look at one or both of the videos I posted in reply to J in Tampa. There are local groups of mycologists affiliated with the National Association of Mycologists. They organize groups to tour mushroom locations in your area. Spreading mushroom spores in the wild would be a good thing to do. It would be educational and profitable if you were able to learn enough to raise mushrooms. Turkey tail mushrooms have helped to cure cancer. There are others able to build the immune system and even to prevent Alzheimer’s.
Thanks everyone for your very helpful information, I hope that we can survive this man-made nightmare that has been foisted on our planet. I can only imagine what our Creator thinks about the arrogance and stupidity of the perpetrators carrying out their evil deeds. There’s not much time left so make the best of each day. Blessings to all of you.
Curtis Stone. You may not be seeing what you thing you are seeing with him. Beware.
I like Curtis because he emphasizes gardening as a business. He had a recent episode with a farm consultant. That man’s channel had some great videos. I learned a lot. But I do not like either man’s methods. I prefer No Till. I follow Dr Elaine Ingham’s work. Using her methods, we get better results with fewer costly inputs. There is another channel I watch that pushed her work to the extreme. His only amendments are wood chips and leaves he gets for free. But he is selling for organic prices. That consultant friend of Stone’s earned $17,000 on less than 2,000 square feet. That is less than 1/21st part of an acre. I am into prepping but your bug out location will need to produce both food and an income.
