Ashes to Ashes, Dust to Dust. All things in nature are a cycle, and the food cycle is perhaps the most crucial of all. Understanding how that cycle works in as much depth as possible is crucial to survival, if SHTF. Many already understand the value and importance of organic farming, even those in urban areas, but there is a part of the organic farming path that is often neglected: composting.
Understanding at least the basics of how to produce high quality, nutrient-rich soil is incredibly important, as those nice bags of pre-made soil from the local home center won’t be available in a disaster!

Before disaster strikes, it’s wise to get a grasp on the methods of compost, and to have a working knowledge of what can and cannot be composted, in order to generate high quality soil, which will in turn, produce high quality fruits and vegetables for you and your loved ones. On SHTFDad.com, we have put together some information on a few of the common methods of composting for those who want to learn the basics.
For further information on composting, and deeper insights into what to compost and what not to compost, check out this Guide to Composting with Tumbling Composters.
An understanding of how composting works will enable you to keep the food cycle going in times of crisis. This will, in turn, enable you to keep the life cycle of your family and loved ones going as well.
Knowledge is power, and it’s better to have that knowledge before you absolutely need it!
