Welcome to the Home Grown Prepper!

I'm the Home Grown Prepper and I'm here to share my successes and my failures in preparing for survival and sustainability. If you're new to preparation, survival and sustainability, this is where to begin.

My concern is: If people act like this when things are normal, how will they act when things aren't? Preparation is peace of mind and getting started is a decision you'll never regret.

That’s a great question. Let’s see if I can answer it:

I put together the Survival 101 ultimate list page to tackle the tough questions giving beginners headaches.

I like to read: How do I know which books to buy?


When it comes to online purchases, reviews count!

I don’t believe in purchased reviews. Nope, not here! I prefer reading everything I recommend and if I haven’t read it, I’ll let you know. I rate books on a 5 star system that includes:

  • Agree with Amazon.com
  • ‘Must have’ critical knowledge
  • Page turner
  • Easy to read
  • Recommend to others

I also dig book recommendations. Feel free to send me suggestions or request a review for a book you’re publishing. I’m glad to help where I can.

Want some help finding the best supplies and gear?


Sifting through thousands of products online is overwhelming.

Preparedness is a game of efficiency: When you’re inspired to improve your odds of survival, you want to get to the meat on the bone.

I designed the “Shop” page with efficiency in mind. Get the list, do your own research and move forward with what you need. I believe in the products I share because I’ve purchased, tested and like each one. That’s it!
