A crash course in changing the world.
The hero I am shadowing is Novella Carpenter, author of "Farm CIty". Novellas story is about urban farming in a blighted area of a major city in California. I have always been interested in farming ( having grown up in a farming community).
I think one facet of a multiapproach to food shortage and famine would be urban dwellers growing some of their own food, even just a small amount. This would reduce their dependence on food imported to the city and also mayhaps be something they could sell extras of. A wh*** cottage industry of seedlings, homemade equiptment, tools, and knowledge could come into existence.
I am working on a formula or plan to maximize the amount of food that could be grown in a very small place. Say a two foot by two foot square. I am at the beginning of this journey and am sourcing the answers to many questions.
I have emailed Novella Carpenter and have subscribed to her blog "Ghost town Farm" and am going to try and use her knowledge and links to answer some of my design questions. Peace, Michael
