This week in the show Lisa and I had the pleasure of speaking with Rick Austin, a.k.a., The Survivalist Gardener. Of all the interview we have done on the Survivalist Prepper show, this one ranks high on my list of favorites.
We not only talked about his book Secret Garden of Survival, we also talked about Prepper Camp, his weekly show on YouTube called Politically Correct TV, and Rick’s other books, Secret Greenhouse of Survival and Secret Livestock of Survival.
SPP216 Prepper Camp, Gardening and Politically Correct TV With Rick Austin
Over the course of an hour we talked quite a bit, covering quite a few topics. Below is a list of topics we covered, but make sure and listen to get the full picture.
Prepper Camp 2017
For those of you who haven’t heard about Prepper Camp, Rick does a great job of explaining why it’s better than the typical prepper convention, and what to expect. Rick and his wife Survivor Jane started prepper camp in 2015 and has steadily grown in popularity ever since.
Prepper Camp was put together with the idea of putting the emphasis on learning preparedness skills, not just buying preparedness supplies. This 3 day event offers a number of classes to take, taught by well known experts in the preparedness industry.
There are still a few tickets available (at the time of this podcast) but registration ends on August 31st. Visit the Prepper Camp website for more information.
Secret Garden of Survival
For some people (including me) this seems like it would be a daunting task, but that is not the case at all. The principals or the survival garden apply whether you live in the suburbs, or a rural area. Rick’s garden is on 1/2 an acre, and produces as much food as 2 1/2 acres using typical farming methods…row gardens.
The great thing about a camouflaged survival garden is you don’t even need a half acre to put one together, and after the first year it basically takes care of it’s self. No watering, no weeding, all you have to do is harvest.
Rick’s books are available at Amazon in Kindle or paperback format. He also has a book on a Survival Greenhouse, and Survival Livestock.
Politically Correct TV
I wasn’t aware of this weekly show until I got in contact with Rick, but I’m glad I know now! This isn’t an over the top, and over produced Alex Jones type show, it’s 3 guys asking questions and stating facts.
Rick hosts the show with MinuteMan1776 and Dean Logic (on Twitter) and this show is right in my wheelhouse. If this is something you would be interested in, make sure and subscribe to the channel on YouTube.
