Compared to regular prepping, stealth prepping involveslearning survival skills and becoming fully prepped while staying under the radar.

This kind of prepping offers benefits, especially if you don’t wantnosy neighbors finding out about the six month’s worth of food and other survival supplies in your stockpile. (h/t to What is stealth prepping?

One of the biggest problems for preppers or anyone wanting to be better prepared for different emergencies is how to not attract attention and possibly become a target for looters in a post-SHTF world.

In some cases, this can result in someone turning into the common stereotype the “paranoid prepper.”

Even preppers know that it’s not helpful to have an unhealthy level of paranoia. To avoid this, you can think of how you can incorporate useful hobbies and family activities that naturally lend themselves to being better prepared.

Here are some hobbies and activities that can help you and your family prepare for different emergencies: Bicycling (Can help improve your overall fitness.) Foraging (Can offer benefits, especially when finding an alternative food source after SHTF.) Hiking (Can help with your well-being and improve your navigational skills.) Orienteering(Can help improve your navigational skills.) Yoga (Can help improve your agility, fitness, mental focus and overall health.)

Follow the tips below to get started on your stealth preps:

Install rain barrels

If you already have a home garden, installing rain barrels can offer some benefits. If you want to have incognito rain barrels, you can install containers disguised to look like planters or rocks.

However, before you buy rain barrels, check the laws in your area. It may seem silly, but it is illegal to collect rainwater in some places.

Organic gardening

Growing organic crops in your home garden can help protect your family from store-bought fruits and vegetables that are often exposed to harmful chemicals like pesticides.

Even if your neighbors don’t know that you’re a prepper, they won’t be suspicious if they see you digging in your garden or watering your plants. (Related: Prepping basics: How to scavenge and forage for supplies after SHTF.)

If you already have a home garden, you can secure additional ways to grow your food by creating an edible landscape on your property.Edible landscapes are next-level stealth prepping and they’re the ultimate in food camouflage.

There are two ways to create an edible landscape: Plant flowers, bushes and trees that are edible, or Plant edible fruits and vegetables among the flowers, bushes and trees in your home garden to camouflage them.

Regardless of the option you choose, the result is a beautifully landscaped property that can secretly feed you after disaster strikes.

Note that creating an edible landscape takes some advanced gardening skills and a lot of work, but its a great way to deter people from helping themselves to your garden.

In most cases, non-preppers can’t steal what they dont notice. Where to get supplies for stealth prepping
