I wanted to make a group for those who might be a bit more serious about self-reliance.
I didn't want to use the "prepper" tag because it has become associated with gathering guns and stockpiling heaps of dried/canned goods.
The farm/home-steader tag seemed a lot more appropriate. The combination of the two, even better.
In 2014, I lost power for over a week in the floods. I always knew we flooded but it was enough of a shock to make me realise that Brisbane isn't immune to delayed repairs. In a state-wide disaster, you need to be able to manage for at least 4-8 weeks, depending on where you live.
So, feel free to contribute with your thoughts on resilience, farmsteading, homesteading, prepping etc.
