Growing food to survive

 The author of The Resilient Gardener: Food Production and Self-Reliance in Uncertain Times,Deppe says you need an acre. But others say a quarter acre is enough.
Deppe’s book might help you build a veggie-garden with climate change in mind, but she lives in temperate Corvalis, Oregon, population 54,462. In other parts of the country such as New Mexico, Texas or Nevada, she might have other concerns. As it is, the book is mainly about surviving when the world infrastructure collapses and she has nothing to rely on but herself.  
Which brings us back to the vital question of how much land you need to feed yourself and a family. Too much land is just more to defend against the marauding hordes. Too little and you will starve as there will not be enough space for the chickens.
