Is There a Famine Looming?

Mirroring an article ACS Principal John Mason wrote some time ago ("Will Australia Starve?" - click to read), a recent report from the UN paints a grim picture of looming famine if the sustainable production of food, fuel and water is not addressed urgently. To read the report on ABC's "The World Today" site, please click here.

What are you doing for your own family?

There are many options on the path to becoming self-sufficient, and most people agree that they could do more to ensure the ready supply of fresh food to their families. ACS has been offering courses like these for years, and has helped many people become skilled in food production. Producing your own food removes the worries of poisons that may have been used on vegetables bought at the supermarket, and you can be sure they haven't been sitting on the shelf for 2 months; which gives your family maximum nutritional benefits.

Courses that will help you to become more self-sufficient:

Self Sufficiency I (we also offer II)
Home Vegetable Growing
Home Fruit Growing
Home Garden Expert
Certificate in Horticulture (Permaculture)
... and much more!
