I must say that as many of us have been doing our best to prepare for what is ahead (Proverbs 27:12), I am learning more and more myself. From chicken coops to gardening and a lot of stuff in between, everyone is attempting to do things a certain way, many with success. However, what is you live in downtown Los Angeles?
Here’s one family that produces 6,000 pounds of food per year on the little 1/10 acre homestead they have created.
From the video description:
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.
