The FDA announced a new program to register “community” gardens. If you raise food, and give away or sell beyond your needs, “they” want to know. Do not comply. In light of government standing orders and policies all stores of food and water are subject to seizure during a declared “emergency”. Do you really want to give them a map to your house? – Phil Hunter

Do Not Help The Govt Steal From You! Preppers, Remember The U.S. Government, Under Martial Law, Can Come Take Your Food, Water, Weapons & Anything Else They Want
By Susan Duclos – All News PipeLine
Under Martial Law, by executive orders signed by multiple presidents over the decades, if a national emergency is declared the U.S. government can come into your home, overriding Americans’ Fourth Amendment rights guaranteed by the Constitution, and take whatever is yours, including your food, water, weapons and anything else they want to take.
One such order was declared and another Barack Obama in 2012, but others have also signed such orders in between.
As a reference to the wording of these orders, we look to Obama’s in 2012, found at the Obama White House Archives page, link here, called the “National Defense Resources Preparedness.”
Sec. 201. Priorities and Allocations Authorities. (a) The authority of the President conferred by section 101 of the Act, 50 U.S.C. App. 2071, to require acceptance and priority performance of contracts or orders (other than contracts of employment) to promote the national defense over performance of any other contracts or orders, and to allocate materials, services, and facilities as deemed necessary or appropriate to promote the national defense, is delegated to the following agency heads:
(1) the Secretary of Agriculture with respect to food resources, food resource facilities, livestock resources, veterinary resources, plant health resources, and the domestic distribution of farm equipment and commercial fertilizer;
(2) the Secretary of Energy with respect to all forms of energy;
(3) the Secretary of Health and Human Services with respect to health resources;
(4) the Secretary of Transportation with respect to all forms of civil transportation;
(5) the Secretary of Defense with respect to water resources; and
(6) the Secretary of Commerce with respect to all other materials, services, and facilities, including construction materials.
Later in the order it describes food resources as “all commodities and products, (simple, mixed, or compound), or complements to such commodities or products, that are capable of being ingested by either human beings or animals, irrespective of other uses to which such commodities or products may be put, at all stages of processing from the raw commodity to the products thereof in vendible form for human or animal consumption. “Food resources” also means potable water packaged in commercially marketable containers, all starches, sugars, vegetable and animal or marine fats and oils, seed, cotton, hemp, and flax fiber, but does not mean any such material after it loses its identity as an agricultural commodity or agricultural product.”
Very broad definition of food resources…. everything that can be ingested, or used to make anything that can be ingested.
DO NOT REGISTER YOUR FOOD GARDENS WITH THE GOVERNMENT!
Now keeping that in mind, one must wonder why anyone in their right mind would agree to “register” their community gardens with the U.S. government under their “The People’s Garden” program.
To be clear, these gardens they are asking Americans to register include: School gardens, community gardens, urban farms, and small-scale agriculture projects in rural and urban areas can be recognized as a “People’s Garden” if they:
• Benefit the community by providing food, beautification, wildlife habitat, education site, etc.
• Are a collaborative effort. This can include groups working together with USDA agencies, food banks, Girl Scouts, Master Gardeners, conservation districts, etc.
• Incorporate sustainable practices, such as using native plant species, rain barrels, integrated pest management, xeriscaping.
• Educate the public about sustainable gardening practices and the importance of local, diverse sources of healthy food.
Granted, at the moment, they do not include “private residences” in this registry (yet), but considering how many community gardens there are, with more popping up, we are talking a considerable amount of food, and Americans are being asked to volunteer, to the government, exactly where to go during a national emergency to steal food from your community, to distribute in any way they see fit.
Preppers are generally aware of OPSEC, Operations Security, where you do not, ever, offer the enemy, or in this case a government that can at any time assert the power to confiscate your “food resources,” information that makes your stocks vulnerable.
In other words, you do not announce to the world where you keep your stocks, how much you have of any given item, what your defenses are, or anything else that makes you vulnerable.
I would list the registering of your community gardens, used to feed your family and other families that participate in the community garden.
Nothing like a big sign saying “HERE, COME TAKE OUR FOOD UNLCE SAM!”
Another point to be made is exactly what a community garden is. Most think it is one garden, maintained by a community, where the food belongs to all of them equally, but in fact, many are made up of individual plots that is cultivated by one entity, whether that is a person or one family unit.
A community garden is a piece of land gardened or cultivated by a group of people individually or collectively. Normally in community gardens, the land is divided into individual plots. Each individual gardener is responsible for their own plot and the yielding or the production of which belongs to the individual,. In collective gardens the piece of land is not divided. A group of people cultivate it together and the harvest belongs to all participants. Some researchers do not distinguish between a community garden and a collective garden, but in reality, they operate on very different principles. Community gardens can be created on private or public land, where citizens can grow fruits, fine herbs, flowers, but mainly vegetables. Around the world, community gardens exist in various forms, it can be located in the proximity of neighborhoods or on balconies and rooftops.
In short, if the government seized a community garden that is divided into individual plots, then private families, using the land granted (maybe they don’t have enough room at their own home), could be left with nothing from their hard work to feed their families.
The point here is: Do not help the government steal from you. Do not register your garden. Do not volunteer to become some of the first starved in an actual SHTF scenario because you willingly gave the government your information.
