We wanted a system that was already streamlined. So the people we work with are extremely professional and your products will be delivered in a timely manner, consistent with your expectations. No mom and pop operation is running the store, it’s a company with a worldwide reputation for delivery and retail logistics. But most of the products on the store are SIGMA 3 tested and approved by our cadre. And we will be doing tons of testing videos on these items to show you what we think about them. No BS assessments on the quality of products via our youtube videos. We will let you know what your paying for!

Not only will we have lower priced options on survival gear, but we will also be providing very high end options for the best of the best in survival gear! The equipment we sell is only equipment that SIGMA 3 believes in and we won’t sell an item we don’t feel is very good or worth putting our name behind.

Homesteading Tips- How to Make Your Own Dog Food

IMG_0514

Making homemade dog food is so simple that your gonna slap yourself on the head, and say “why didn’t I think of that”. All you do is keep your leftover food from dinners, the trap line, and any other way that you have extra meat scrapes, rice, or vegetable leftovers. You blend them up and feed em to your pups! Now remember that there a lot of foods you don’t want to put in your dog’s food, and Almeda will explain those to you in the video below. Most dog foods bought from store don’t contain all the essential nutrients that your dogs need so we as responsible owners should do something to supplement their needs. In the dog food production industry, the factories will heavily boil all the protein and it will destroy the essential enzymes your dog needs. That is one of the many reasons that making your dog some supplemental food is so important. Corporate America isn’t going to look out for your pups, so you’re going to have to do that by getting educated on what your animal needs. And since most people have an excess of scraps from their kitchen that they are just going to throw out anyway, it’s a no brainer and a perfect answer to our dog’s needs.
Permaculture is the idea of permanent culture, to use the available resources that you have around you in abundance to meet all your sustainable living needs. Here at SIGMA 3, we are growing our company in a much greener way than many other corporations. We believe that it is important to leave less of a footprint here on earth so that we have less impact on the surrounding ecosytems. Not to get all bush hippy on you guys, but we all have to start changing our ways and learn to live in harmony with the land. Homesteading and permaculture is the future of a sustainable world and we need to all get educated on it. We have to use what we have and create very little waste. Creating closed loop systems is the key to securing a sustainable future for everyone. Essentially we should mimic nature and leave nothing to waste. And by using existing systems nature has created for us, we can lessen our work load and do more for the environment.
It is amazing to see some of the recent technology has been created through Bio Mimicry technology. Please google it and look at some of the amazing technological feats that have been accomplished from sampling learning techniques from nature. What the modern world is just now starting to figure out, is that nature already had the answers figured out long ago and all that we need is to have awareness of our surroundings. We must be aware of how everything works in nature and learn how those sustainable systems have been created, and then try to mimic it.
Creating your own home made dog food can be one way of helping your animals health and using permaculture to make an impact on your footprint. This may sound dramatic, but every little bit helps! So hopefully you will enjoy this video and start using your leftover scraps for your dog’s greater health. Tune in for more blogs to come on all kinds of topics to cover: permaculture, survival skills, upcoming school news, and much more! If you have an interest in learning these skills to improve your life, make sure to check out our instructor programs so that you can immerse yourself into these skills. Thanks again for your support. Please share this video and article with others!

 

America Unplugged

SIGMA 3 on new show “America Unplugged”

Hey Everyone,DSC_0786

Well we wrapped up another TV shoot with another awesome organization, the Sportsman Channel. SIGMA 3 was recently featured in the new show called “America Unplugged” hosted by Cade Courtley. The show is about preppers and survivalists that are on the path to getting off the grid and it’s a well done documentary about our lifestyle here at SIGMA 3. The show focuses on our efforts to build a self reliant homestead. Each new episode will feature a new family or group of Off Grid Survivalists. If you hated Doomsday Preppers because of the Tin Foil crazies, then you will definitely like this well thought out documentary that skips the sensationalism and gets right to the heart of how important self reliance is to everyone. We did the shoot prior to the build out of many of our homestead projects and it was in the middle of winter, so the episode doesn’t display all the awesome progress we have made on the garden and survival camp. But it was still a great episode on the philosophy of self reliance and the necessity to unplug from the grid!
We have been in the process of building out several homestead projects over the last year and we are still in the beginning phases of building a permaculture based farming setup. Our goal is to reduce our waste to as little as possible, grow most of our food needs, supply our own electricity via solar, raise various types of cattle, and become as self reliant as we possibly can. We aren’t just about wilderness and urban survival, but also homesteading and permaculture based skills as well. DSC_0897

We are currently still building our the Urban Farming model here at the homestead. Our idea is to create an urban design that almost anyone can incorporate if they have even a small amount of space. We are going to show all the various urban gardening techniques, so that people can pick and choose what they need for their place. This project should be completed by the end of 2014 and we will keep blogging our updates so stay tuned for future projects.

The show also covers some our wilderness survival training and it outlines how important it is to not over emphasize your gear based preparations, and instead train your mind to create everything you need from minimal resources. It encompasses our philosophy of walking off onto the land with nothing but a knife and surviving indefinitely! Please check out this episode and share it in other survival forums so that we can spread the word about Self Reliance. These old school skills are the key to our future and lets share these truths with as many people as we can. So stop sitting on the sidelines and get active in pushing these skills to your friends. Because there might come a day when you are going to depend on these same people for your life and you want them to have the best training and education they can get. Whether it’s through SIGMA 3, home training, or some other organization; make sure you get prepared today by doing some training!
