consumption needs to come to a full stop.

that's not anarcho communism, it's post-civ

Anarcho-communism is

common ownership of the means of production and direct democracy as well as a horizontal network of workers' councils with production and consumption based on the guiding principle "From each according to his ability, to each according to his needs"

It's not the abolishing of industry, it's the democratization (and thus the prolonging) of the workplace.

I got an edible plant identification book written by a botanist in my area with photos and set about picking plants to eat. I soon found other edible plants that weren't in the book with the help of the internet and stapled in extra pages I made.

If I need to make a tool or solve a problem, I just use common sense, look at the materials I have available and figure out how to fuse them into something that would be useful

I experimented with preserving food and came up with several methods. e.g. I picked a ton of wild olives at different stages of ripeness and used 4 different curing methods including water curing, brine, layers of rock salt, sun drying to see which had the best results. I found green / unripe olives can quickly be water cured by just seeping them in water and changing it once a day until the bitterness is gone, while super ripe olives take much longer to water cure and are better brined
