(a) “Ethan Asher” writes in:
Is home owner ship the only way to start preparing for what’s coming. I ask because a lot of the hydro/aqua ponics set ups I’ve seen don’t seem feasible in a 2 bedroom apartment.
“Max Smith” nails it!
Apartment living is perfect because now you will have to overcome many limitations of your living space to grow food. What you learn in the overcoming is going to be your best harvest. Get started–please.
Adding to that, on two fronts:
1. skills. become valuable to community. imagine food pouring forth from your hands with ease, under any number of conditions. become that person.
look into urban farming, urban homesteading, and urban prepping.
(b) Back to Paul D, where do I start with my new property?
I want to throw this out to the audience — what are your favorite sources for picking up new sustainable practices?
My 2c, consider: PDC. philosophies
Also: urban farmers, Growing your Greens, have lots of videos, good understanding of how to fit good growth in small space
Library: old books: encyc of country living, catalog of mother earth news. Lots to learn, these will give you giblets, hints at directions to try.

Short answer: My personal preference is to fully control your bitcoin on 8/1, ie be in full ownership of the private keys. For more, see:
IAF highlights the historic flooding across Western Japan which has caused 400,000+ people to evacuate today–receiving 16 inches in 4 hours!!–as well as other headlines reinforcing the core IAF message: START GROWING YOUR FOOD TODAY. Crop losses continue, exponentially increasing extreme weather events, and volcanic/seismic activity: many indications that the effects of the Grand Solar Minimum continue to accelerate.

Start taking daily steps NOW towards radical self-sufficiency so that you can thrive in the Grand Solar Minimum!
Supporting the MODIFIED LIMITED HANGOUT theory — they couldn’t stop the public from catching on.
We are seeing massive crop losses across the world due to the Grand Solar Minimum — ideally, we have alternative systems in place to produce food for our families and communities BEFORE the system collapses completely. What is happening now is historically what happens before famine.
Are you taking responsibility for your family thriving in the times ahead?
Please share with your friends information on the Grand Solar Minimum and the resulting climate disturbances we are experiencing, as well as intensification of the crop losses that have already begun.
Today I introduced an army of ladybugs to help me in the grand battle against Aphids.
Also, the nature of exponential growth, recognizing this in the climatic events playing out around us, and the importance of spreading the word about the Grand Solar Minimum and the associated larger cycles of empires/civilizations on Earth.
The greatest shortcoming of the human race is our inability to understand the #exponential function.

Start taking daily steps NOW towards radical self-sufficiency so that you can thrive in the current Grand Solar Minimum / Little Ice Age.
a period during which solar activity diminishes, resulting in drastic climatic and geophysical changes to our planet. These include increased galactic cosmic rays (GCRs), seismic activity, and volcanism; the latter often results in a global reduction in temperatures (see "the year without a summer" -- and much more on the IAF wiki).
