As growing fuel prices continue to escalate, the cost of everything goes up. The droughts and floodings have also aided in limiting food production and thus, we are seeing food prices rise. But what if you could grow enough food for your family and then some? What if you could do this without having a large plot of land? Well, you can!
City Prepping recently produced a short video demonstrating just how you can do just this!
Over 6,000 pounds of food per year, on 1/10 acre located just 15 minutes from downtown Los Angeles. The Dervaes family grows over 400 species of plants, 4,300 pounds of vegetable food, 900 chicken and 1,000 duck eggs, 25 lbs of honey, plus seasonal fruits throughout the year.
From 1/10th of an acre, four people manage to get over 90% of their daily food and the family reports earnings of $20,000 per year (AFTER they eat from what is produced). This is done without the use of the expensive & destructive synthetic chemicals associated with industrial mono-cropping, while simultaneously improving the fertility and overall condition of the land being used to grow this food on. Scaled up to an acre, that would equal $200,000 per year!

Urban and near-urban farming can be highly productive, causing whatever size of land you have to work with to produce with more abundance. It is time to solve hunger worldwide, through creating local food abundance…. Anyone can do it, once you learn how.
Additionally, I interviewed Jim Gale of Food Forest Abundance about how he helps people map out just how to use the limited space they may have to produce this bountiful harvest for themselves and those in their community.
We must be self-sufficient, relying upon our Creator, in order to be free and one of the pillars of true liberty is to be able to produce our own food.
