Will there be a synopsis or summary or outline of each presenter or should I contact the presenter themselves to find what they are going to talk about?

The Edible wild plants on Sunday morning looks interesting but it also includes a headline "the food industry"....i'm interested in prepping topics like foraging, but am afraid people will be coming to air there personal beefs/bias too on the food industry, or whatever else...i just don't know what the topic will involve.

Same with essential oils. on Saturday.  If this is legit, very interesting topic...if its some aromatherapy or unproven alternative medicine it really has nothing to do with me or prepping and don't want to waste my time, or the presenter's going to it.

This is description of the Emergency Preparedness with Essential Oils presentation.

"Emergency Preparedness with Essential Oils".

Food, Water and Power are just a few of the Emergency Supplies we collect and purchase when we are striving to become prepared for natural disasters and other emergencies. Have you considered Medical Preparedness?
If you couldn't get to the local store or pharmacy to get the necessary prescriptions and medicines for yourself or you family, what would you do? What if a pandemic hit and you couldn't get to the hospital or choose not to go, what could you do?
Join us as we learn what essential oils are, how to use them and which oils you should have in your emergency kit.

This  is the description of  The Food Industry , Edible Wild Plants ,Your Health and More presentation.

Foraging for your food should be a regular routine because of today's global food industry. Learn about some of the 'food-like' substances you're eating, what they do to human health, and why the survival of your health depends on much more than just reading labels. Taking care of your health is easier than you think and Karen will offer you simple tips on how to be healthy.

The presenter is Karen Stephenson she is a professional writer, researcher, author, and owner of EdibleWildFood.com. She has studied herbal pharmacy, botany, and nutrition.

A lot of very well informed presenters showed up, and I Need to give thanks to the promoters for much of the stuff that was given and raffled off. Great show Guys & Gals, I take my hat off to you...and, damn, I left it behind. :o

What a great event! Many thanks to all those who attended, all those who contributed to the effort and of course to our sponsors. The event took months to put together and was worth every second of the time invested. Preppers, survivalists and people interested in preparedness that belong to a number of groups including Ontario Prepper Survival Network, CanAmPreppers, United Survivalist Network of Ontario came together for our common interest. There were lots of interesting presentations and demonstrations with great interactions between those who attended.

Photos? How many attended?
Photos and info coming soon.
We were so tired after the show, so much running around and interaction with people. Making an event like this tick right takes more than the preliminary setup.


Monday I was wiped, did not help that I am still somewhat sick and have problems with my feet now, so could not do as much as I wanted, too much pain !


MountainMan's books were a hit and some where sold his large binder setup one took quite the interest from a few people.
Karen did the wild edibles walk and her books sold good as well.


Undoing the damage and issues created by some at the IPN/CPN was and is ongoing. Oldschool booked in Greenside electric a company that solarfits houses, they do offer personal solar setups or camping style setups so they and We were of course the wrong fit and were a disappointment to each other.


Che stepped up at the event, and did a whole bunch of things, running around barefoot no less. The Barefoot Organizer !
He also cooked up a bunch of grilled cheeses to help raise money to pay for the expensive hall that was booked by someone without proper thought or running it by the other people involved.


Denob did show up, did supply the items donated to the event, so good on him for doing so. His kids had a good time playing at the Provincial Park, his talk went over OK so that end was good. No negative issues spewed forth at the event from him so that was very good as well.


I am being very honest here, folks! We need to overcome the negativity he created on the IPN/CPN site.
More info to follow on the event soon.

Over the two days there were a little over sixty signed in. A few were presenters that stayed for the whole event. There were also some that did not sign in.
