"The overall goal of Suburban Self-Reliance (SSR) is to help those of us living in the suburbs to realize that increased self reliance is possible. Many times when the topic of self reliance is discussed, the setting is usually a rural area with several acres of land. Unfortunately, some of us simply do not have that opportunity at the moment. For one reason or another, we live in suburbia and will continue to live here. However, just because we live in the suburbs does not mean we cannot become more self reliant."
