Ozarks Self Reliant Living University

The Ozarks Self Reliant Living University, held in the Missouri Ozarks, was originally schedule for January 23rd and 24th, 2016. But because of the massive snow storm in the eastern half of the U.S. that weekend, it took place January 30th and 31st.

This is an annual preparedness seminar you’ll want to attend if you’re within driving distance of southern Missouri.

Event organizer Mike Slack was my guest on DestinySurvival Radio, and he filled in more of the details than I can relate here. Though the event was postponed after our conv ersation, Mike says everything was to be the same as before.

By the way, if you’re reading this post after the event has taken place, I invite you to listen to the DestinySurvival Radio episode linked below to find out what an event like this is all about. Plus, Mike and I talked about what to do if you want to conduct your own expo for fellow preppers.

Ozarks Self Reliant Living University took place January 30-31, 2016, from 9 AM to 5 PM each day.

Saturday it was at the Faith in God Church near Koshkonong, MO. Sunday it was at the Next Step 7th Day Adventist Church, West Plains, MO. As unusual as such an arrangement sounded to me, Mike said it’s been done in two separate places like this for several years and has worked out fine.

Seminar topics covered include…

  • Surviving Disaster with Nothing
  • Self Defense
  • Tiny House Homesteading
  • Ham Radio Communications
  • Stocking Your Medical Bag
  • Staying Healthy with the Right Foods
  • Medicinal Uses of Hemp
  • Energy Self Reliance
  • GMO’s and Heirloom Seeds
  • Seed Saving
  • Preparedness 101–Social, Financial, Working Together as a Community
  • Cherokee Traditions and Self Reliance
