As previously detailed in other postings, urine is as good or superior to chemical fertilizer. It produces excellent blooms for the plant due to potash levels, and the nitrogen is equally necessary for their growth. Since we need to grow as much as possible in a small space, we must fertilize it to get high yields. Urine must be diluted or it will be too much for the plants. This means that you need to set up a rainwater collection system too. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t2fO9WN3NZ8[/youtube] You could add the urine to your compost pile as well. Urine is safe to add since it usually is sterile. Human fecal matter isn't and contains harmful bacteria. Never mix human solid waste and urine at the same time, or it will slow down bacteria counts and not digest well.

Using the black sheet in this method and not introducing a lot of green matter means faster composting. [youtube]http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dpKuVh8xXXs[/youtube] If one used a garbage disposal, then chopping up the material fine will produce very fast composting since it comes out like a soup. [youtube]https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hf27WBJ2sNQ[/youtube] To power it, you'd need an inverter connected to power it from a dc battery. This is very possible if you have a solar power trickle charger for the battery. Composting human manure is a length process. I don't recommend it for a tribe of any size. It takes two years, and a lot can happen with soil leaching in two years. It also typically involves a ton of sawdust, something that is difficult to create without power tools post-collapse.

There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
