How Big a Backyard Do You Need to Live Off The Land?

Here’s an interesting visual, stretching the imagination about just how much each person could produce from their own land. The original link here includes interesting comments, both incredulous and inspired, but I think this reader’s comment sums this kind of visual up nicely:

“Some people may mock this infographic but IMHO let’s not pick the figures to death and consider the principle which is to make people think about the possibilities and answer a very common question about how we can become more self-sufficient. No matter if you have 1000 acres or a balcony in the city, it’s how you use the space! If one tomato plant saves you $5 in tomatoes from the supermarket and gives you organic beautiful tomatoes then you’re a success and more self-sufficient than you otherwise would have been without growing anything.”
