I’ve recently taken a master gardener program that really goes into market gardening, food forest and food production with beyond organic practices. It has given me the confidence to really think that I (and a group of like-minded folk) could really begin to start a garden/food forest.
Are there any of you who have started a community where you grow/raise 90% of your own food and have that as a source of income for the community? How many acres do you have in total? How much of that space is used for growing/raising food? Does everyone have a task/job that they do or do you all alternate? Do any of the communities that do this also allow for the public to visit and learn about what you are doing?
Thank you for taking the time to read this and enlighten me!
