Urban Agroecoloy: 6,000 lbs of food on 1/10th acre – Urban Homestead – Urban Permaculture

by Urban Permaculture,

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.

    Great “How-to” vids from this guy, who started out by leasing his neighbors’ yards.

    Thanks SGT for posting things like this story.

    This is one of the things that can and will save people from starvation. They don’t have to do EVERYTHING all at once, but there are plenty of ideas and examples of HOW to feed yourself & your family, community, etc.


    Between GROWING your own food, and getting your own electricity from SOLAR, and HOT water from solar, and home made solar OVENS, etc.

    Clever people with the right information will be OK.

    Now I see it’s possible to buy solar panels on Ebay for LESS than $1/watt. We can survive almost anything if we are prepared and informed.

    Great story, showing that we can all live free and well. That is, until local Government stomps on it and Monsanto forces it to go GMO.
