Sustainable Solutions for Everyone
Community engagement is at the core of our initiative to build a sustainable and local food system.
In the Tiny Farm Project, community engagement is at the core of our initiative to build a sustainable and local food system. Recognizing that individuals come from varying backgrounds and offer different resources, we have identified three key groups that can significantly contribute to the success and growth of our project. Here’s how each group can engage with Tiny Farm Project to fulfill our mutual objectives:

To explore the potential for a single acre of land within the Tiny Farm Project to produce a diverse and sustainable food supply, sufficient to nourish a family of four.
This case study focuses on the range of animals and crops that can be incorporated into a single acre, including a garden, chickens, pigs, rabbits, and an orchard. It offers estimates on the volume of food that can be produced within a year through careful planning and management.
Garden: A meticulously planned garden can yield several hundred pounds of assorted fruits, vegetables, and herbs.
Chickens: A flock of 20 chickens can generate around 200 eggs per week, along with meat and manure.
Pigs: A breeding pair of pigs can produce about 20 piglets per year, which would add another 4000 pounds of meat.
Rabbits: Eight female rabbits and two bucks can produce about 60 litters per year, with each litter averaging 6 rabbits. This would add another 360 pounds of meat
Orchard: A well-tended orchard can harvest several hundred pounds of various fruits such as apples, pears, peaches, and plums.
The Tiny Farm Project serves as a unique nexus that connects these diverse groups. By facilitating these connections, we aim to create a robust network of individuals all working towards the shared goal of a more sustainable, equitable, and local food system.
