Today we are joined by Travers Oliver, survival instructor for Backwoods Survival. Travers 16 years old with a great love for the outdoors and teaching others traditional and modern wilderness skills.
Today he joins us to discuss the importance of today’s youth experiencing the outdoors and learning bush-crafting / primitive techniques.
I also provide an update on the progress so far with the new AgriTrue standard. There isn’t much to see yet but a lot progress has been made thus far. I will need some assistance in talking to the existing community of growers to ensure the final product works for everyone.
