Urban Agroecoloy: 6,000 lbs of food on 1/10th acre
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!

These people definitely have it together !!
But to join them, you need to throw away the t.v. & stay out of restaurants, Mac Puke burger & a bunch more.
I have 5 acres, wow, I'm on my way to being a millionaire !!
