OHIO – Sept 15th – 17th


Caring Hearts, Inc has teamed up with Trading Post In The Woods, Great Living Survival, and Doc Cynthia Koelker, medical doctor and author of Armageddon Medicine, to offer you a unique and rare training event called “A Time with Experts” which will be taking place Sept. 15th-17th  in the beautiful   Ohio countryside.

Not only will you get 2 1/2 days worth of valuable training but you will get to hangout with us around the campfire each night and talk about topics that concern you and your family.

Experts from Trading Post In the Woods, Great Living Survival, and Doc Cindy from Armageddon Medicine will be conducting hands-on classes to help you learn the skills you need for whatever man or nature throws your way.

Training classes will be held at Farmageddon – Doc Cindy’s 20-acre farm and training facility in Atwater, Ohio approx.  20 minutes east of Akron. Between classes feel free to explore the land, visit the pond, or hike to the creek nearly half a mile back. Enjoy both the excellent teaching and the relaxed country environment.

For your lodging convenience there are two camp ground near by:

1 –Countryside Campground right by the lake (Mogadore Reservoir) – about 15 minutes away.  http://www.countrysidecampgrounds.com/index.html. If you do not have an RV they do have unit rentals. The area is very nice, the staff is wonderful, and their rates are very reasonable. This site is our first choice


2 –Yogi Bears Akron/Canton Ohio Jelly Stone Park Resort. A very nice campground but higher priced and farther away about a 30 minute drive – but the drive is pretty. As you will see they do have a large pool and other activities and if you are turning this into a family vacation you will have fun activities.


Also note – there are hotels around the area if you choose to go that route as well.

Our goal is to assist you in being prepared. We will help you learn as much as we are able in 2 ½ days so you can return home with more skills, knowledge, and abilities to help yourself, your family, your neighbors, and your community if a disaster happens.

If you want to attend please do not wait because – space is limited. If we fill up we will start a waiting list in the event someone has to cancel. (This event is posted on different sites and registration is done through their sites as well so our total available does not reflect the class size. If they run out on their sites for allotted space we will give them some of ours)

If you have questions please feel free to email them to evem@tradingpostinthewoods.3ddev-stage.com

This training class is for adults and teenagers who desire to learn.

*The minimal fee of $100.00 goes to help us cover food and other expenses we incur with this event
