As a part of your resilient garden you will need to have strategies in mind on how to care for your plants and trees if the electricity fails or the pump dies or the well goes dry. How do you plant so as to achieve maximum water resilience toward such events?
Should you face a future where there is no garden store from which to purchase fertilizer and other soil amendments, how will you maintain soil productivity and fertility? What can you experiment with and learn to do now that will help you should you ever need to garden without buying or importing anything?
