The world is changing, my friends. With rising costs and uncertain times, it’s time to take control of our lives and become self-sufficient. But what does self-sufficiency mean? Is it a fancy way of saying, “I don’t need nobody”? Well, not quite.
Self-sufficiency means taking charge of your destiny, growing your food, and surviving without relying on the government or strangers’ kindness. And even with the Trade Shack to cover your back, becoming self-sufficient has always been challenging.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But Trade Shack, I don’t have a green thumb!” Fear not, my friend. At the Trade Shack, we got you covered with its local edible exchange program, blog posts and local postcode communities. Join your postcode community or start one, trade what you have for what you need, connect with Backyard Growers in your postcode community and you’ll be on your way to self-sufficiency in no time.
And what about those of you with green thumbs? Well, the Trade Shack has something for you too. With our Seed to Plate program, you can grow your food from the comfort of your backyard. Meet locals and turn your community into one giant “community providing” garden.
No more relying on the grocery store for your sustenance. With the Trade Shack, you’ll be able to grow your food and trade any surplus with your postcode community.
But what makes a person self-sufficient, you ask? Well, it’s about more than just growing your food. It’s about taking care of yourself and your loved ones, no matter what life throws your way. And with the Trade Shack, you’ll have access to a community of backyard growers and like-minded working towards the same goal.
Now, some of you might be wondering, is self-sufficiency even important? Well, let me tell you, it’s more important than ever. With the world in a state of chaos, being self-sufficient means being able to take care of yourself and your neighbours no matter what happens. Less reliance on Government and long supply chains mean more stability and control over the outcomes. And with the Trade Shack, you’ll be able to do just that.
But is self-sufficiency positive or negative? Well, that’s up to you. If you enjoy controlling your destiny and providing for yourself, then self-sufficiency is definitely a positive thing. And with the Trade Shack, you’ll be able to achieve self-sufficiency without sacrificing your quality of life.
Some might even say that self-sufficiency is quality. And I agree. Being self-sufficient means adapting to any situation, adapting to events like a financial meltdown (e.g. losing your job), political unrest and natural disasters. And with the Trade Shack, you’ll be able to do just that, adapt and overcome.
So, what’s an example of sufficiency? Let’s say you have a surplus of tomatoes from your backyard garden. With the Trade Shack, you can trade those tomatoes for something you need, like a loaf of bread, labour or a bottle of wine. Only some people have a backyard suitable for growing food or creating produce. Trading/bartering among people in your local area will create a solid and self-sufficient community.
In conclusion, becoming self-sufficient is important in taking control of your own life. And with the Trade Shack, achieving self-sufficiency has become less challenging. The Trade Shack focuses, as you probably realise, on growing food trading and bartering of that food within a local postcode community. We do not address health, services and the medical side of things, so you should go to Health Australia.
So, what are you waiting for? Join the Trade Shack community today and start trading anything and everything with your postcode community.
