“The Dervaes family grows over 400 species of plants, 4,300 pounds of vegetable food, 900 chicken and 1,000 duck eggs, 25 lbs of honey, plus seasonal fruits throughout the year on their urban lot.
From 1/10th of an acre, four people manage to get over 90% of their daily food and the family reports earnings of $20,000 per year (AFTER they eat from what is produced).”

This award winning documentary is about the same Dervaes family that we profiled two years ago. I think what they’re doing deserves more publicity and so I’m doing a second blog post about them. Listening carefully, I heard a lot of thoughtful points. It’s part of my new effort to publish more urban homestead content.
