I find it ironic that with social distancing ( and I do think it is needed ) I cannot do workshops that can help us to survive situations like this. All any of us can do is to take advantage of the extra time we may have on our hands and practice our skills. I have been consumed with edible plants the entire spring. In March I did a talk for the Virginia Native Plant Society on how Native Americans used our flora to keep them fed, warm and healthy and the day after the talk 'stay at home' kicked in. So it has been 5 months of edible plant study ( obsession ? ) for me. Since I cannot do workshops I have started a daily Facebook post on survival items that I see in my travels. It could be an edible plant, a natural shelter or something good for fire making. Not trying to sell Facebook to you but it is such an easy way to share info without having to click on an email every day, I know that I would not want to do that. So here's the link for your daily skills hit... www.facebook.com/primitivesurvivalskills/?ref=bookmarks
I do not know when I will be having any more workshops, will keep an eye on what the governor says and go from there. Again, use this time of uncertainty to practice and learn. I honestly don't think this will be the last thing that we have to face. Just the empowerment of knowing that you could mostly feed yourself from what is in nature is worth working at. If anyone would want a personal workshop at your place that would be possible with enough people.
Bought a new toy, I haven't played with it much but what a compact little stove to carry in your BOB bag, it solves a lot of issues in cooking. www.uberleben.co/products/stoker-flatpack-stove This guy keeps selling out so I'm not the only one who likes it.
