Wait Til You See How This Family Grows 6,000 Lbs Of Food on Just 1/10th Acre

Farm

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.

VIDEO: This Shack In Antarctica Has Been Abandoned For Over 100 Years. What They Found Inside? Stunning!

When these abandoned shacks were discovered in Antarctica, researchers hit the jackpot when it comes to understanding how explorers in the frozen land lived nearly a century ago.

 

abandoned hut antarcticaErnest Shackelton and Robert Falcon Scott were two of the first men to reach the South Pole and call the frigid, harsh landscape home for any length of time. Now a few of the structures they erected are still there and they shed light on how these men survived in such a desolate, frigid place.

 

 

Pip Cheshire is a conservation architect who has been working hard to restore Shackelton’s buildings in the coldest place on earth.l

He has been working to restore them to the condition of when the great South Pole explorers had lived there.

The shack seems very unassuming from the outside.

And it is clearly in a cold, harsh landscape.

Scott’s Hut is surrounded by nothing but winter wilderness.

Spy-Escape-And-Evasion-Review

Life was crowded in these Antarctic huts. Scott is pictured working at his desk.

Clothing was hung up to dry and despite being inside, the temperatures were still cold.

Supplies were brought in and stored in boxes and jars inside the shack.

The ancient-looking stove needed to provide heat to the explorers who had left civilization to venture into the subzero wilderness.

The average high in the summer was 20 F while the average low reached about -56 F. And that stove was the only source of heat…

The men survived on lots of carbohydrates like flour and crackers.

Fortunately the men never had a shortage of salt.

Do you enjoy the rustic look of the place?

The buildings were supposedly abandoned because they leaked water.

Shackelton and Scott were brave explorers who survived the unendurable cold to bring civilization in touch with the South Pole.

21 Life Lessons from James Bond

21 Life Lessons from James Bond

James Bond is arguably the world’s most famous spy. He always has a witty one-liner, he manages to get out of even the trickiest of situations, and somehow, at the end of the day, he still has time and class to seduce any woman he lays his eyes on.

While it’s his debonair attitude that sells movies, it’s his levelheadedness, cleverness, resourcefulness, and loyalty that make him a worthy role model.

Not Just on Her Majesty’s Service Anymore: James Bond Works for You Too

Implementing some of these lessons can you get into the mindset of a spy. James Bond isn’t just protecting queen and country; he’s also protecting you.

1. “Never let them see you bleed.” James Bond Teaches About Pride

This quote, from The World is Not Enough, is actually courtesy of Q. Here, Q teaches us that it’s important to lick your wounds in private, both to save face and to keep your enemies from knowing your weak points.

2. “Always have an escape plan.” James Bond on Thinking-Ahead

Courtesy of Q in The World is Not Enough, James always knows what’s next, which gives him the upper hand. When it comes to you in your life, it’s good to know where you’re headed, regardless of where you are.

Always be one-step ahead.

3. “I always enjoyed learning a new tongue.” James Bond Teaches Us About Communication

In Tomorrow Never Dies, Bond quips on the joys of learning another language.

The more people you can communicate with, the better.

Written skills, verbal skills, and language skill take you far.

4. “I’ll do anything for a woman with a knife.” James Bond on Caution

This quote from License to Kill gives a bit of insight into when to tread carefully.

James knows it’s wise to give the woman with the knife the center stage for a time—so that he has time to formulate an escape plan.

5. “Don’t forget my pathetic love of country.” James Bond on Why Country is Important

This lesson from Skyfall is an ongoing theme in the James Bond canon.

Whether it’s country, queen, or your family, find something worth fighting for.

6. “Give me the old fashioned target range, Quartermaster.” James Bond on Innovation

In Die Another Day, Bond yearns for the old ways. Learning from traditional methods and employing classic tactics is nothing to be ashamed of.

Sometimes a little glue and duct tape go a lot further than a bunch of fancy gadgets.

7. “I have a slight inferiority complex.” James Bond on Humility

Here in Goldfinger, James teaches us the importance on admitting our flaws—so that we can better overcome them. His answer? Carry a gun.

8. “Well, I’m an early riser myself.” James Bond on Making the Most of a Day

In A View to a Kill James used this line to flirt—but it’s also indicative of how the famous spy finds time to train, learn new techniques, and find time for extracurricular activities.

9. “I have no armor left.” James Bond on Vulnerability

One of the best ways to learn something about another person is to open up. Casino Royale shows us James at one of his most vulnerable states; let yourself shed a little armor once in a while.

10. “Someone always dies.” James Bond on the Circle of Life

In Skyfall, Bond reminds us of our own mortality, the mortality of our loves ones, and the mortality of our enemies. A greater respect for life can help you when making life-and-death decisions.

11. “Alright, keep your hair on!” James Bond on Staying Cool

The world famous spy reminds us here in For Your Eyes Only that overreacting isn’t helpful. Keep a level head when in intense situations.

12. “Youth is no guarantee of innovation.” James Bond on Respecting Elders

In Skyfall, Bond reminds us that being young doesn’t necessarily mean better, and that old doesn’t mean spent.

13. “It was the job we were chosen for.” James Bond on Commitment

Keeping with the theme of loyalty to country, here in Goldeneye Bond reminds Alec that he’s in his profession because he was meant to be. Own what you’re doing to succeed at it.

20. “I’ve never lost.” James Bond on Consistency

While it in itself was a film inconsistent with the franchise, this quote from Never Say Never Again inspires us to set goals for ourselves and stay consistent.

15. “Why is it that people who can’t take advice always insist on giving it?” James Bond on Getting Advice

Here in Casino Royale Bond give us insight on advice. Remember to stay humble.

16. “Don’t think. Just let it happen.” James Bond on Instinct

This quote from The Living Daylights is the other half of Bond’s success. He plans and he reacts in the same moment.

17. “There’s always something formal about the point of a pistol.” James Bond on Weaponry

When it comes to guns, Bond sums it up in On Her Majesty’s Secret Service.

Weapons are powerful and deserve respect and care.

18. “In my business, you prepare for the unexpected.” James Bond on Foresight

This quote from License to Kill reminds us to always be looking for the things others didn’t think of.

thinklikeaspy

19. “This is my second life.” James Bond on Living Life to the Fullest

In You Only Live Twice, Bond is given a second shot at life.

When motivated to change your life, take the opportunity.

20. “The world is not enough.” James Bond on Potential

From The World is Not Enough, Bond reminds us that we, as humans, aspire to do and be so much.

You can achieve anything and everything.

21. “The name’s Bond. James Bond.” James Bond on Self

The classic catchphrase is an important reminder to always stay true to yourself.
