Letter From The Director
It is amazing what all has been accomplished in the last five months. Operation Self-Reliance has become a reality. With the creation of the online Academy and OSR Community, a portal to information, products, and services all dedicated to helping families transition from a city/urban lifestyle to a country culture of self-reliance, families have started their journey to becoming self-reliant.

 A correlation council has been formed with over twenty (20) professionals that range from health care, engineering, construction, real estate, information technology, consulting/management and more. These council members meet regularly bringing knowledge and experience to project.


The project has four steps to bring about this transition. The first involves networking people with other like-minded individuals and resources. The second provides education critical to self-reliance and the creation of a plan to make such a transition. The third is qualifying and organizing the families into land co-operatives. The fourth is helping facilitate the actual transition from the city to 2+ acres in the country with like-minded neighbors. Many only desire the networking with like-minded families and the knowledge associated with self-reliance. These will take that information and go out on their own. Others will want to complete the final two steps participating in Operation Self-Reliance.


These final two steps will take place at five different locations; Arizona, Utah, Idaho, Wyoming and Cardston Canada. Each location will host 250+ families. These families will participate in research to determine the requirements needed to make the transition from the city lifestyle to one of self-reliance, being debt free, with a home, a barn, a greenhouse, a garden/orchard, not connected to any public utility and among like-minded neighbors. In addition, research dealing with health and the impact associated from such a change will run parallel with the other research.


This Saturday, the 16th of February we are holding our 2nd Operation Self-Reliance Super Saturday and invite all to come and participate. There will be the introduction of the Indoor Micro-Greens Garden, Information on obtaining optimum health, in the shortest amount of time for the least amount of expense. Information on properties identified in Arizona and Utah will be on display. There will be a meet and greet potluck with an evening presentation on the Power and Freedom Associated with Councils. All this and more. Come and join with us.


God Speed,


Philip Gleason
