Canning A Viable Means Of Increasing Self Sufficiency:
8-11-15 pressure-canning-101 
Tonight we are going to talk about food preservation, canning in particular. I’ve never been big on canning but my grandmother canned a great deal and I have been thinking about getting into more gardening and canning as of late. It seems that this year there have been shortages of every type of food from dairy, to poultry to canned vegetables. Those shortages have really opened my eyes a great deal as to how fragile our food supply really can be. So tonight I have Heather from to educate us all on canning in traditional off-grid mediums as well as modern day canning procedures. She will also be telling us what we should stock up on, how to know when canned food has gone bad as well as a few general tips and tricks.

We will then turn to the topic of gardening on a small scale. I know not everyone has a ton of room or time to dedicate to a garden so I wanted to focus on some tips that would be applicable for anyone regardless of if they live in a city, sub-division or out in the woods. So we will be talking about square foot, growing plants inside your home and using preserving the food you grow through canning or using root cellars. I look forward to hearing from several of you with various tips and tricks for small scale farming operations, I have heard of square foot vertical gardens that are able to produce enough food for a family of four for most of the year. So feel free to send in pictures ( or tips and tricks and I will gladly include them in the article that accompanies this show, mention them on the air and share them in chat (giving you credit of course and hopefully you can call in to speak about your successes).

This week’s survival skills challenge will be fire craft once again and it will center around one stick fires. I will make one on video to demonstrate the process and look forward to your video replies. If you haven’t been following along with the challenges weekly you can find them on my blog (Find last week’s challenge here). The challenge is basically to help everyone get out there and build their skills or brush up on something they haven’t don’t in awhile. As an added bonus if you are following along with the weekly challenges you will have a head start when we release our correspondence courses this winter as they will include much of the same skills and you can use those pictures and videos to complete the course book faster!

About The 7 P’s Of Survival show!
Join Josh of the 7 P’s Survival Blog in the studio every Tuesday night at 9pm Eastern Time. This is a live show where you can interact and engage with Josh and His guests (Josh often invites his friends from the preparedness community to dig into pertinent topics). You can interact via chat room or by calling into the show (we would love to hear from you!). Each week regardless of whether there is a guest for the show Josh will dig into current events and legal issues which relate to preparedness, update you on what is going on with his blog/survival school and review the happenings of various survival related television programming.

Josh runs the 7p’s Survival Blog, JPS Consulting LLC (Oil & Gas Law, Business Strategy, Emergency Response, Etc.), A Survival School (Coming fall of 2015) and is working on his first survival related book (he has published several books on incident command and legal issues for emergency response agencies). Josh has worked in emergency response since 1999 serving as a fire chief and a variety of other capacities throughout his career. Josh holds a Doctor of Juris Prudence degree from the West Virginia University College of Law along with a BSBAd’s in Marketing and Management from West Virginia University College of Business and Economics. He also holds hundreds of emergency response related certifications many at the national level. He has taught at a wide variety of emergency response conferences and for various state and federal agencies mostly in the area of incident management, technical rescue and hazardous materials mitigation.

This show will explore a wide variety of topics including: legal issues in preparedness, wilderness skills (including a weekly skill challenge- A youtube video will be shared each week demonstrating a skill for listeners to review and post their responses), self reliant skills, gear reviews and interviews with manufactures, current events, Q & A with fellow bloggers and YouTuber’s, emergency response and disaster preparedness and recovery.

So what are the 7 P’s? The 7 P’s concept is derived from the military and emergency response where the pneumonic stands for the following: Prior, Proper, Planning, Prevents, Piss, Poor, Performance. This old adage stuck with Josh since his early days in the fire service and resonated with him so much it became his approach to preparedness and wilderness survival right along with his emergency response career.
