Prepping for Survival

It is no secret that people are worried about our country and our world collapsing. Although many of our friends and families think we are a little crazy for "Prepping" it is gaining acceptance and approval by society. Natural and manmade disasters, terrorist attacks and financial catastrophes are among the most likely suspects. This class taught by Jacob Herman is the most well rounded and informational class of its kind. Jacob has been prepping since 1992 and went through college taking courses just to become more educated about agriculture and food distribution. He is also the co-host for the upcoming Spike TV show on Prepping.

This will be a lecture oriented class but we will have hands on demos and interactions as time permits. We may travel to offsite locations like farms or greenhouses so have weather appropriate clothing and footwear.

Why are we here?

Survival mindset lecture – the "news" isn’t something that just happens to other people.

What first? Water filter, food, guns, shelter?

We may go back in time as far as technology is concerned 100 years or more.
