The Family Preparedness Group on Facebook

Have you ever wanted to go someplace and just talk about your questions about preparedness? The forums of those survivalist groups seem scary, the food storage groups don’t like to talk about anything other than just food storage, and websites aren’t always great for facilitating discussion.

Come join us on Facebook in the Family Preparedness group! We’re a new, eager Facebook group all about empowering women to become prepared for their families. It’s a sister-project to our Pinterest Board hosted by me, Jennifer of , Bunny Wickham (Home & Family Preparedness) and Julie from

Our goal is to help each other become more prepared for what life throws at us, by learning new skills and subjects not limited to canning and food storage – but including survival methods, preparing and educating our children, self defense and more! Come join us, won’t you?

Katy Willis is a writer, lifelong homesteader, and master herbalist, master gardener, and canine nutritionist. Katy is a preparedness expert and modern homesteader practicing everyday preparedness, sustainability, and a holistic lifestyle.

She knows how important it is to be prepared for whatever life throws at you, because you just never know what's coming. And preparedness helps you give your family the best chance to thrive in any situation.

Katy is passionate about living naturally, growing food, keeping livestock, foraging, and making and using herbal remedies. Katy is an experienced herbalist and a member of the CMA (Complementary Medical Association).

Her preparedness skills go beyond just being "ready", she's ready to survive the initial disaster, and thrive afterward, too. She grows 100% organic food on roughly 15 acres and raises goats, chickens, and ducks. She also lovingly tends her orchard, where she grows many different fruit trees. And, because she likes to know exactly what she's feeding her family, she's a seasoned from-scratch cook and gluten-free baker.

Katy teaches foraging and environmental education classes, too, including self-sufficient living, modern homesteading, seed saving, and organic vegetable gardening.

Katy helps others learn forgotten skills, including basic survival skills and self-reliance.

She's been published on sites such as MSN, Angi, Home Advisor, Family Handyman, Wealth of Geeks, Readers Digest, and more.
