Politinerds: Rick Austin, The Survivalist Gardener


This week’s guest on Politinerds is Rick Austin, author of Secret Garden of Survival- How to Grow a Camouflaged Food-Forest and Secret Greenhouse of Survival- How to Build the Ultimate Homestead & Prepper Greenhouse. Doug and I get to talk to Rick about what to do when the Zombies arrive or the meteor strikes, specifically how you will feed yourself. Rick lives off the grid and has developed some incredible methods for growing a garden which will feed a family with little to no maintenance while not being an obvious target to marauders. His background and research are most informative.
