Advanced Community Planning Series #3: Post-2012 High-Yield Victory Gardens — Author, John Jeavons
In a post-2012 world, food will be as scarce everywhere, just as it is now in many third world countries. Americans can barely imagine what it means to eat mud pies like Haitians do, or to simply wither away like the millions of victims of war and greed in Africa. Yet we say "there for the grace of God go I."
While we may believe that our high technology solutions will save us, that's not in the cards says high-yield gardening and farming expert, John Jeavons.
Jeavons is the author of the widely popular how-to book, How to Grow More Vegetables and Fruits (and Fruits, Nuts, Berries, Grains, and Other Crops) Than You Ever Thought Possible on Less Land Than You Can Imagine. He sees a malnourished future made horrific by adverse climate change and genetically modified seeds.
For those of us who can barely keep our house plants alive, the task of learning how to work the land in a post-2012 is daunting indeed, hence we tend to put it off. However, what will we do when the last of our emergency food stores are exhausted? Will this be the right time to learn the essentials of growing in a post-2012 high-yield victory garden?
If you think so, then more likely you'll be eyeing the dead and dying about you and thinking to yourself "do I really need my sense of humanity?" That is, if someone else hasn't already eyed you first, with the very same thought in mind.
That is why this program is so critical to the Advanced Community Planning (ACP) series. In this series, we've previously explored how to build a post-2012 era survival community based on the Arcosanti model and how to harvest water in the arid climates of the future. The time to feed ourselves after 2012, begins now!
