Prepper Garden Tools
Manual garden tools for preppers

How will your garden grow? Your long-term survival depends
on
farming skills acquired long before the unthinkable occurs. It
also depends on your arsenal of tools. Gardening tools will come
in handy before, during, and after a disaster, catastrophe or
economic down turn, for example:

  • Wartime: In wartime, your "victory" garden will help extend
    what you can buy with ration coupons.

  • Great Depression: Life during a Great Depression will be
    easier with a garden for a couple of reasons. Obviously
    gardening can help ease economic woes by supplementing
    food reserves, but it also will provide a meaningful and
    healthy hobby. Remember, the Great Depression lasted ten
    years and the people who had a garden or who were farmers
    didn't starve! Get your survival seeds now.

  • Pandemic: Even during a pandemic, your garden could help
    you survive. You won't need to head to the supermarket for
    your fresh produce and in the process avoiding people and
    their contagion will help you survive.


A garden won't help you with every man made or natural disaster
situation, but certainly a garden will put you and your family in a
better position for just about any scenario. To this end, we've
gathered a list of manual garden tools to help you gain self
suffuciency.
