- 4,000 square feet. Organic home garden. Supports the family with all their own food. The only food they need to buy from outside is grains like wheat etc. The small garden gives 3,000 pounds of food per year. When the 63 year old father started the garden some years back the rest of the family wondered what he was doing. Now restaurant chefs are literally beating their path through the garden's 400 varieties of vegetables, fruits, berries + bee keeping, very friendly chicken, goats etc. to their front porch of the house where they sell for around 20,000 USD per year of their surplus production. Restaurants deliver used cooking oil to their doorstep for their old Bio Diesel converted car. completely free of charge. 12 USD electricity in average per month in total.
The watering method with clay pot irrigation is enough reason to see the video.
