Quality post-op discussion on The Bypass

The smallest possible garden you could live off
That link to the garden grower was pretty cool!
Some observations – 4000 ft2 is 370 m2, quite surprisingly small really. I remember visiting the Waitangi Treaty grounds and seeing diagrams of these massive gardens that were required to feed the occupants year round and thinking that self-sustainability from a garden was impossible because the space required was so massive.
Santa Cruz I would imagine would be a pretty good place to grow crops, it has a very Auckland-like climate. I wonder how much labour he puts into his garden.
Also it mentioned the San Joaquin Valley (pronounced something like Wah-keen); this is where a lot of American produce is grown, but it is also has 3 of the worst polluted places in America and is generally disgusting. I would never have believed that agricultural and horticultural processes make that much air pollution until I had to drive through it.
Thats about all for today.
I suspect hydroponics would be way more productive than any soil system
but dad he specifically says the organic farm should be a closed circuit system, and hydroponics you have to add all sorts of imported nutrients, so you can’t really compare how productive one is with the other i think.
fair enough however I was replying to the particular point of it being the SMALLEST garden to sustain one rather than how you did it
