What is food production like at the Labs (or the area people live, not really familiar with the names)? I'm guessing maybe the people that live there grow separate gardens each on their own spot and maybe a food forest area somewhere? Just curious how food production works with a community-type living arrangement. Maybe it's too soon and most time is still being spend on infrastructure?
I know many work at various activities for their meals while they're prepping their own gardening beds/hugels and building their houses, and so do not have much in the ground when they first start out, but I have not heard much in the way of truly communal fields or orchards that are used until self-sufficiency occurs?
Experimenting and growing on my small acre in SW USA; Fruit & Nut trees w/ annuals, hoping to get Chickens, rabbits, and in-laws onto property soon.
Long term goal - Furniture & Luthier Stay-at-home farm dad.
Food systems our slowly being set up.More and more garden beds were being planted and orchards being planted.There our many fruittrees at the lab.Also apricots planted.Food systems take time to set up.When I left there were building more infrastructure to support growth.Also a water well needs to be drilled to consistently water gardens needed to be implemented.No way to predict rainfall.In short I think getting the water is the key to setting up a garden/farm.I would be curious to see some animal hunsbandry going on.I think this would be the fastest way to meet the self sufficient calorie requirements at labs.Be interesting to see the progress.
The little engine that could.
