Project Noah is a yearlong food storage and emergency preparedness program designed to help you set and obtain goals in the area of family preparedness. The program is divided into twelve monthly assignments touching on lots of short and long term preparedness subjects including a preparing, a reporting and a sharing segment each month.These lessons are designed to be used in church or community groups focused on self reliance and preparedness. Start your own group and use these newsletters as a reference resource. Many articles will link to previous articles on SunOven.com or other sources. Click for additional information.
Our SEVENTH month’s lesson includes first aid tips on insects/snake bites. We are continuing to add items to our 72 hour kits – blanket/sleeping bag, memo pad/pencil, money, stress relievers, nylon cord, safety pins, respirator mask, garbage bags, extra batteries (for flashlights and radios).
Our non-food items this month hand sanitizer and tissues. In addition to searching for the best buys on what you like to use, we have included an alternative recipe to store-bought products.
Our long term storage topic this month is Fermentation. Fermented vegetables last longer than freshly picked ones and contain healthy pro-biotic microbes.
Do you know how to “Make Your Own Groceries?” Expanding your basic food storage to include some suggested items will expand your cooking capabilities. We’ve included some recipes, but we’d love to share some of your favorite recipes. Send them to editor@SunOven.com
