Frequently Asked Questions

Q: How is Prosperity Grove different from other prosperity, gardening, or survival websites or schools?

A: We pioneer modern gardening and survival with unique, innovative solutions by expanding on the techniques that pulled societies through catastrophic times, and adapting them for today’s world. In the process we’ve discovered an extreme platform for building a thriving, close-knit family, a diverse set of friends, and a better community. Our goal is to help build prosperity whether society is thriving or collapsing. It’s up to us to take control of the things we can change.

Q: Could you give me some examples of the unique Prosperity Grove principles?

A: We’ve pioneered land assessment into a systematic approach to analyze and plan for soil productivity, ecological enhancement, and long-term survival. We teach crop growth tactics such as season extension, fruit size increase, drought protection, ecological gardening symbiosis, carbon and microbiology enhancement, and crops unfamiliar to most gardeners. We mix ancient technologies with new, and science with art and experience. We hunt and fish for “undesirable” species that most outdoor enthusiasts ignore. We learn to “make our own stuff.” Our underlying assumption is that fossil fuel, electricity, and money may not always be available. And we look to the future.

Q: Where did this unique Prosperity Grove concept come from?

A: A legacy of farming, hunting, fishing, primitive arrow making, healthy family, education, and unique career experience combined to birth Prosperity Grove. This prosperous lifestyle starkly contrasts with a society plagued by the pain of broken homes, environmental exploitation, separation, and degradation, the decline of social relationships induced by modern technology, and the absence of a stewardship lifestyle. Now is the critical time to reverse this trend. The greatest travesty in human history is the rejection of the Creator. His timeless land management and prosperity truths have never been more needed. It’s time to Prosper!

Q: What’s so special about the Garden of Eden?

A: See the Garden of Eden tab for more information. There’s simply not another garden like it. To put it in modern English, you just gotta see it. The sooner we reach our funding goal, the sooner we’ll have an amazing display from which all can learn!

Q: I don’t have a big property, so how does this apply to me?

A: Anyone can practice the gardening and outdoor concepts we present. The Garden of Eden principles apply to even a 1-gallon pot on your porch, a small raised garden bed, or a guerrilla garden tree or plot. America is blessed with vast areas of public and idle land to hunt, fish, forage, train, and explore. More space simply means you have more diversity, crop potential, and more room to play. Prosperity Grove has something for everyone.

Q: I don’t believe in God and don’t believe the Bible, so why should I consider the Biblical component of prosperity or gardening over conventional wisdom or gardening practices?

A: Because Prosperity Grove has numerous unique concepts from which ANYONE can benefit if they wish to increase prosperity and stewardship knowledge. We wish to share the gardening and outdoor adventure we’ve lived and continue to grow. Everyone needs food, health, and hope.

Q: Couldn’t you just leave God and the Bible out of the picture?

A: If you attempt to operate a complex machine without the operating manual you will eventually have problems and miss the machine’s full potential. Leaving the Creator and His operating manual out of the picture hinders, stagnates, or prevents ultimate prosperity and sustainability, as proven by civilizations since the beginning of history. Give Him a try. His principles are proven.

“Come now, and let us reason together, saith the LORD: though your sins be as scarlet, they shall be as white as snow; though they be red like crimson, they shall be as wool” (Isaiah 1:18).

“If they obey and serve him, they shall spend their days in prosperity, and their years in pleasures” (Job 36:11).

“Let them shout for joy, and be glad, that favour my righteous cause: yea, let them say continually, Let the Lord be magnified, which hath pleasure in the prosperity of his servant" (Psalm 35:27).

Q: How can I help Prosperity Grove's mission? 

A: The Prosperity Grove Team has the knowledge, wisdom, and skills that countless people seek. What we need is the financial resources to fulfill our vision. Your one time gift to help acquire the land or equipment, or monthly support for living and operating expenses, will help make the Garden of Eden and Prosperity Grove a reality.
