Straw Bale Gardening is container gardening taken to the next level. As the straw inside the bale starts to decompose and creates the perfect environment for your seedlings.

Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
