We found you on the Internet and thought we were the only people to feel that a critical imbalance of food demand and food supply is coming. It nice to know there are others. We feel this so strongly, that we now have made it our life’s mission to become prepared. We feel this crisis will peak sometime by the year 2030 leaving large groups of people without enough access to food. We picked this date because we see populations grow, especially in developing countries. We see food production affected by changing weather, the increasing price of oil, dwindling supplies in fish\crops, collapse of the U.S. dollar, hyperinflation, and global debt. These two forces will cause the demand for food to outstrip supply by the year 2030. We had a choice either become a Grower, a Hoarder or a Dept of Homeland Security Detainee. Regardless of how much food we hoard, there is a limit and we sure are not about to be detainees. We have chosen to become a Grower and share our knowledge and experiences with others. We call our program – The Art of Sustainable Living. It is how to grow food and be self-reliant whether you live in an apartment, condo, and house. You do not have to be a farmer. We have just purchased 80 acres, End of the Road Ranch, with one mile of Siletz River front for primitive campsites. We plan to develop a Self Reliant Education Center, not a working Ranch. Preparedness knowledge is so important that we do not feel that we could charge any fees for Self Reliant knowledge, but do ask the campers, with their labor to help us build the Center, which include building a 200 yard firing range. Since I just turned 74 and no permanent community is planned, this building may take a while, but I will post more later about our progress. Any Oregonians that want to camp, fish and help, give us a shout. Our user name is Taxmoms because we are retired Tax Professionals.
