We are currently working on the website.  We may have closed on meetup, but our monthly meetings and presentations are still continuing.

Stay tuned!

 

 

I am in the process of revamping the website, so keep checking back for updates.

Novembers meeting is being held at the regular meeting place on November 23rd at 10:30.  This month’s meeting is being presented by Mike.  Mike’s presentation will include:

Discussion on Canning, Preserving, and Storage Philosophy.  This talk will provide an overview of the basics of hot water canning, pressure canning, mylar and 02 absorbers, dehydrating,  and will touch on other preservation or food storage methods. Tools and materials will be described along with a show and tell of example products,  thoughts on stocking supplies for canning, and time for sharing ideas and experiences. Information on additional resources will be provided.

If you have any questions, feel free to contact us.

 

 

We had a great meeting in Nyack on Saturday.   Thank you to Kevin for opening his home, and what a beautiful home I have to add.  It is located across from the Hudson River and the home is to die for.  Its an historic home that’s been kept in mint condition and retains all its original character, Kevin was our tour guide as he showed us the house (they don’t make homes like that anymore).  Kevin has created a prepper oasis and has his bases covered.  We could all learn a lot from him.

Victor gave a demonstration of square foot gardening (www.woodlotfarms.com), even though the temperatures were predicted to hit 100 degrees.  Thank you Victor, to work in that heat isn’t easy.  Luckily Kevin had thought out the day well and kept us working in the shade and once the garden frame was built it could be moved to a sunny spot.

Then when we were finished with the garden frame we stopped to enjoy a nice lunch (everyone brought something).  Then we had a short meeting.  There were quite a few ideas for some future meetings.  Then after we were pretty much done the clouds started to come in and threatened with a few raindrops which got us all moving to clean everything up.

Thank you to everyone that came out to brave the heat wave.  It wasn’t that bad though because we were at the perfect spot being surrounded by big shade trees and being across from the river breeze.

 

 

We had the Northern New Jersey Preparedness meeting this past Saturday. There were over 25 of us there, and what a great group of people… full of ideas. It was nice meeting everyone.

The members came from all different areas of Northern NJ, from different walks of life and different sets of skills, a great mix. Every one came up with lots of ideas for our future meetings and I’ve already reserved the meeting room for the next two months as we decided we should at least meet monthly.

We started the meeting by introducing ourselves and mentioned the reasons we were there and what we each wanted to get out of the group. The two hours went by so quickly.  At the end many of us stayed and talked in small groups and exchanged useful information.  It was suggested that maybe we should do that at the end of each meeting…. mingle and talk among ourselves, not a bad idea.

Our plan is to figure out what skills our members would like to share with the rest of the group and each month we can highlight a member.

I just had to take a picture of the room before everyone arrived.  I didn’t set up the table and chairs very well so we had to rearrange them after the meeting started.  We put the tables around in a circle so everyone could see each other.  Lesson learned for the next meeting.

I’m looking forward to the next meeting already!

 

This is just a short post today as I just wanted to tell you the cool news:

I recently joined the Northern New Jersey Preparedness Group, I also volunteered to take over as the organizer.  They haven’t had a meeting in a long time so I’ve set up one for this coming weekend (March 10) at our local library.  I already have 30 people signed up (the group has 95 members).  This will be the first Prepper meeting I’ve ever attended.  This meeting is to talk about how we want to move forward with the group and I’m sure people will talk about the prepping they are doing.

I’ll keep you updated on how the meeting goes.
