If you are a regular reader, you may have heard me mention my love for monthly goodie box subscriptions. I have an entire blog devoted to beauty boxes. This hobby has introduced me to several other types of discovery programs as well. Homegrown Collective’s Green Box is one that may be of interest to the beginning prepper.
Self-sufficiency and sustainability are essential for making it through to the other side of a disaster. Unfortunately, over the years we have become more dependent on others and less dependent on ourselves. Few people know how to grow their own food these days, nonetheless have the knowledge to identify wild plants for natural remedies or make honey into a healing salve. Homegrown Collective is on a mission to introduce subscribers to the skills and ingredients necessary for self-sufficient living.
As a subscriber, you can expect seasonally curated goods to help you make the most out of growing greener at home. Each monthly shipment is themed. Past boxes have included:
- “The Culture of Fungi” (DIY mushroom growing)
- “Tis the SEASONings” (cheese-making)
- Home Remedies and Cure-Alls (DIY cough syrup)
- How Sweet It Is. Honey – (lip balm and salve-making)
In addition to the instructions and supplies needed for the main task, boxes also include other locally sourced goods and storage equipment (i.e. really cool glass jars and bottles).
Why We Love Homegrown Collective
As we have mentioned here on the blog and in our ebook several times, many people are scared away from self-sufficiency and emergency preparedness. It can be intimidating watching television programs with underground bunkers and seeing Pin Boards full of elaborate rainwater systems. Baby steps! Homegrown Collective provides a low pressure introduction to skills like gardening, natural remedies and cheese-making. The instruction and recipes stay with you long after your box of goodies is gone.
Subscriptions start at $39 per month (plus $9 shipping). Discounts and free shipping are available with 6 and 12 month subscriptions. Homegrown Collective backs their product with a no questions asked money-back guarantee.
