Sustainable urban farm

This amazing family grows over 6,000 lbs of organic food on a 1/10 of an acre homestead near the city of Los Angeles. Check out the incredible video to learn how they do it!

Taking sustainable gardening (and living) to an extreme, the Dervaes family lives an off-grid lifestyle just 15 minutes from L.A.. On their tiny homestead, they support themselves mainly on the 400 varieties of vegetables, fruits, herbs, and flowers that they grow on their tiny organic urban farm. They also raise bees, goats, chickens, and ducks.

They produce enough food each year to feed their family, and also sell some to local restaurants, using the money to buy more space-intensive crops that they cannot grow, such as grains.

Check out the story of this amazing family in the video below!

About the author 

Rose S.

An avid gardener since childhood, I love sharing my passion for gardening with others! I have gardened in a number of different climates and settings, from large fenced garden plots, to tiny patio and container gardens, and I firmly believe that everyone can learn to grow at least some of their own food - no matter where you live. Growing your own food can help you take control of your own health and food supply, and there has never been a better time to get started!
