fiscal cliff, the banking meltdown in Europe, and the unsustainable accumulation of debt by governments around the world, this response is not so surprising, says Marjory Wildcraft, a leader in the survival and preparedness industry. Wildcraft has been described as the Martha Stewart of self-reliance. She is a regular guest on national radio and television shows and was recently featured as an expert in sustainable living on National Geographics hit series, Doomsday Preppers. Wildcraft is an author of several books, but is best known for her video series Grow Your Own Groceries ( http://www.GrowYourOwnGroceries.com/dvd ), which is a crash course on growing food that is used by homesteaders, survivalists, universities, and missionary organizations. Kevin Barber, owner of the online training school Mainstream Preppers ( http://www.MainstreamPreppers.com ) agrees with the survey findings. In the surveys, weve conducted weve found very similar results economic collapse is by far, the biggest concern among preppers. Jack Spirko, host of the popular Survival Podcast ( http://www.TheSurvivalPodcast.com ) also agrees that much of his audience see the financial situation as the biggest concern among the many possibilities. Spirko is quoted as saying, Economic collapse is a matter of when, not if. To meet the growing demand for information and skills related to self-reliance and sustainable living, Wildcraft has created an online information center at http://www.GrowYourOwnGroceries.org with free resources on : How To Find The Perfect Survival Retreat Video Interviews With Economic Collapse Survivors Survival Gardening Heirloom Seeds and Seed Saving Guns for Women and Beginners Investments & Small Businesses That Succeed In Times Of Crisis Backyard Food Production Healthcare When There Is No Doctor Why the emphasis on growing your own groceries?

ZORT. (Zombie Outbreak Response Team), a group made of preppers who train others to prepare themselves for the end of the world. The group has members in 30 states and is attempting to establish chapters in all 50. Lostritto and his response team are a part of an international movement that cant get enough of the brainless undead. Despite being fictional, zombies can be used as a fun and interesting way to teach important lessons to people, Lostritto said. The publics fascination with zombies goes back a long way. Lostritto said his first experience with zombies was George Romeros Night of the Living Dead, which was released in 1968. The movie terrified me, and since then I was hooked. Lostritto points to George Romeros movies as the start of the zombie craze, but said more recent TV shows have re-ignited public interest in zombies. AMCs The Walking Dead, a show about a small group of survivors trying to make it in a world infested with zombies, broke cable ratings records with the finale of its third season.
