What can 100 sq meters of land produce?
CHEC stands for Community Housing and Employment Coop. 10 families make up CHEC - my name is Chris. We plan to live in community and we aim to make the 2acres of suburban land as productive as possible. Food gardening will be one of our core activities. We hope someone can give us authoritative references on what we should expect to achieve in gardening terms. For example, Yates, a well respected reference here in Oz, says that 100 square meters of land can supply year-round vegetables for a family of four. We are chasing down details about labour, water and nutrient inputs, as well as info on yields. While the numbers will vary from place to place, there must be 'ball-park' numbers we can refer to. Hope you can help!
