THE WANDERING SADHU WEBPAGE
HUNGER, FAMINE AND POVERTY ARE COMING,
HOMELESSNESS ALL ROUND!
GET READY TO EAT THE OLD FASHIONED WAY.
PICKING IT UP OFF THE GROUND!
THIS IS AN URL ARCHIVE. STASH THESE WEBSITE URLS so the day you're homeless, jobless, no more plastic, just a rumbling tummy, you and the family can pull the old teardrop trailer to the side of the road and eat like kings.
I WORK FOR FOOD OR WITH FOOD - There are dozens of jobs available on any stretch of highway that will get you both money and food. Can you say " I can cook all day at your CAFE, I can do dishes at your cafe. I can clean your garden if my children can lie in the shade under that tree. I can foodscape your whole garden for you. I can wash your cars and wax and polish them?"
DUMPSTER DIVING - THE FREEGANS. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Freeganism
GLEANING - In the BIble you'll see that in olden days, widows and children were allowed to glean the fields. It's still spiritual law.http://www.endhunger.org/ to be able to do so. END HUNGER ORG has a list of GLEANING STATES. It isn't legal in California though.
ROADKILL AND OTHER 'FOUND ITEMS' If you drive rural roads, you're constantly finding livestock that wandered under a truck. Learn to sniff the corpse, seek signs of aging like maggots. If none, keep a tarp in the trunk, get the unfortunate critter home and give butchering a chance. Wash meat in tub, throw bloody water on your berry patch, cut haunches into 4 oz steaks, and wrap individually in plastic to freeze. If you're homeless, use a pal's freezer. Rural? Meat house l0' up a tree works only if it's freezing. That meat will be fine, it's ORGANIC, just as good as WHOLE FOODS. Not 11$ a lb for lamb or goat, zero. Not 25$ a lb for venison. FREE. Now if it's possums, the Latinos tell me they're great meat but.... maybe for the cats and dogs. I don't do possum, myself
BEGGING - Trust me, this only works in a big city! Or should I say, the big ANONYMOUS city. Pick a really posh corner. Use a prop: the cup full of papermate pens (you collect them at every single Starbucks or cafe you go into, they lie on counters everywhere.). On cup full of pens it sez 1$ OBO. A bowl of polished apples, peaches, apricots, pears, same sign but Bananas are probably better. Nobody's going to buy food that they cannot peel as they believe all poor people have cooties. Hang No signs saying "I won't spend it on booze, I don't drink,' just clean up, groom well, polished hair; wear pure white maybe, lei of flowers. A tray of flowers would also be lovely, but in water. Gardenias would be tops. I just walked down a street filled with gardenias, roses, honeysuckle. Plucked one for my hair and am wearing it now. There are little winkie drinkie glass tubes you put flowers in, beg 'em from a florist.
What to do with your ten kids while you're begging, oh homeless one? Not the park. An adult must be present at the park cuz that's pedophilia land. Most anybody you know will take ten kids for a few hours. Lock down and a good television. If you're on the street, homeless, home school them rather than expose them to the derision of their confreres as they wear unlaundered clothing and soiled socks.
RUNNING AROUND IN MOTHER NATURE! - It helps if you have a gun as there are a lot of rabbits out there and a fishing rod as fish abound but rarely do poor people have guns or training in shooting or costly tackle. What you CAN do is associate with a farmer. They always hunt and fish. The URLS below teach you to recognize good food among herbs, shrooms.
SQUATTING - In addition to the belief that people should not have to go without food when plenty of unused food is thrown away everyday, freeganism also encompasses the idea that people should not be homeless when unused buildings are available. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Squatting
TRAPPING SMALL GAME
OTHER WAYS TO SURVIVE - You must learn to RECOGNIZE FOOD when it's staring you in the face.

SEED COMPANIES ARE VERY VERY GREEDY. You do better going to farmers, neighbors for seed. Many people don't know how much seed is in their garden, offer to do fall clean up for them. Some seeds appear mid summer.. A package of commercial seeds even from dealers below, costs about what I would spend to eat in a week. For me, Free works and these guys below, do not, so I'm not making them LIVE LINKS. The second you're online at GARDENING chat sites, you can wrangle free seeds from farmers.
