AY Honors/Subsistence Farming
While similar to Agriculture and sharing some things with the Gardening honor, this honor is specifically for learning how to grow a garden of sufficient size and crops to create enough food to feed a family year-around. Many tribal cultures use these same methods to survive! Now you can learn -- hands-on -- how to follow their example!
The Challenging Part
The most challenging requirement of this honor is probably this:
1. Participate in the preparation of a food garden nine meters square. Cover the following points.
- a. Choosing the site
- b. Clearing the bush
- c. Cleaning the area
- d. Preparation of the soil for planting
