Soil Testing Kit - Recommendations

Brand new to the group. During the past couple of months I have watched and read The Crash Course. And read Prosper.

I want to, at least on a very small scale, try to grow some of our own food. I want to start by testing my soil.

Can anyone recommend and relatively inexpensive, relatively easy to use, soil testing kit?

Thanks,

PJL

Olympic Peninsula people/next Seattle meetings?

Hi all, 

I just found this group and am so happy that there are people here in WWA! We just moved to Port Angeles on the Olympic Peninsula and are eager to start making connections and meeting people. Is there anyone from the OP here? Even if not, Seattle is just a ferry ride away :). Do you still organize meetups in Seattle? 

We attended the Peak Prosperity Seminar in Sebastopol, CA in May and would love to keep the lively discussions and intriguing ideas going now that we are back home. 

Thanks! Doro

Empty Shelves after recent snow...

After the minor recent snow and seeing the effect on our fragile food supply system got me thinking, wonder if anyone wanted to share any tips for food storage and preps?

How about some recommendations for good UK companies for long term supplies?

Top tips for long term storage?

Hi, My name is Chris and I live in a small town in Wales called Tywyn. I'm just getting into Peak Prosperity and looking for advice or local connections. I'm starting by looking at my food production options and considering an Allotment, so any advice would be welcomed.

Are there any active support groups in Wales/UK?

Thanks

Chris H
