Two thoughts on this meme - self-reliance is necessary, and self-reliance is not sufficient, because if capitalism destroys the climate your homestead goes with it.

My grandma lived through hard times in the Great Depression, which is why my family is located in such a remote state. She taught me a lot, but I'm not much of a gardener. My husband has a garden every year though, and he's hoping to have backyard chickens.

I feel like the best things I learned from my grandma are not to waste food, and to keep bags of beans and rice on hand at all times for the hard times. That's saved me a few times
