As we navigate these time of big transition it is a good idea to build your resilience at home.
This can save you money, unhitch you from the destructive (and sometimes unreliable) industries that feed and house us. It is also so good for mental health to start to claim sovreignity for your own life and to begin to take the action you can in your own back yard.
At a Personal Resilience level resilience depends on our physical and mental health, the range of skills we have to look after ourselves and generate income and (importantly) how we get on with others.
At a Household Resilience level we consider the diversity of skills within the household and also the capacity to provide some of the basic needs of the members for food, water and energy.
At SEED we spent some time working with households in Mitchells Plain through the Seeding Futures training. This infographic sums up the simplest, low cost application you can implement in your own home.
