Go to Johnny's Seeds and do some reading Planning Tools & Calculators | Johnny's Selected Seeds
Your local extension office should have good info on what grows well, planting dates for your area and they may know local growers for local seed. Talk to the market growers in your area - ask to go help harvest and plant . Trade your labor for instruction.
No reason to wait for an event start growing part of your food now and expand a crop or two every year.

Animals are easy! Gardening is such a drag. I need to find someone who loves to garden to come hang out with me. I can grow animals all day long! :D

if you don't plan on breaking ground til after everything gets flushed, how do you plan to come up with the seed potatoes to plant an acre and have enough grow to eat and seed for following year? how do you plan to survive through a winter and a growing season if the fur were to fly in mid September and you miss planting?
Be sure and plant grape vines along the edge of the property. Train them to grow up a tee post with a 4 ft. square of hog wire mounted on the post. Water them with drip irrigation. Keep them trimmed to fit the hog wire. You will have lots of grapes to go with the tates.
Make sure you stock up on work gloves. Clearing even a small section for gardening will ruin your hands and even with the gloves you will still
get blisters if your not used to it. So stock up on antibiotic ointment as well.
Substance gardening takes time to learn. Start now start small so you don't give up. Much as I know they are a bunch of liberal wacko's Mother earth news has some good ideas and pointers. But consider the source with some of their claims.
Learn the produce that fits your growing season and plant accordingly, some crops go in early some middle some the end. Human body does best on verity.

My thoughts are you need to think this thru a lot more. Where you planning on getting enough seed potatoes for an acre and a half during a crisis? You ever grown a potato? Let us know what gardening experience you have.

Those 3 foods provide almost complete nutrition and all will store rather easily. For not a huge amount of money, you could put up enough seed, purchased from your local coop, to feed your group. I suggest you read up on it.
