Have you ever imagined what it would be like to grow your own food? As preppers, we tend to think of the best way that we can get food in cases of emergencies. While some people think it might be impossible, you’ll see later just how possible it is.
If the Dervaes family can do it while living in Los Angeles, I think you can to.
The Dervaes family live on 1/10th of an acre 15 minutes from downtown L.A..
That’s a pretty normal thing, right?
The crazy thing is that they manage a sustainable and independent urban farm. Yep, they’ve even got animals as you’ll see in the video below.
In a year they produce around 4,300 pounds of vegetables, 900 chicken eggs, 1000 duck eggs, 25 lbs of honey and pounds of seasonal fruit. How amazing is that? All in their yard.
What the family doesn’t eat they sell from their porch, making around $20,000 a year. Local organic food is so popular that they don’t have any problems finding customs. Even chefs from restaurants seek them out.
place looks way smaller. It’s interesting to know all the same. Check it out here… if you’re curious to learn what size yours is.
Here’s the video… Enjoy!
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!
To follow the Dervaes and their Urban Homesteading activites, you can find them at http://urbanhomestead.org
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.
