Downtown LA is a busy business district of Los Angeles, California where you can find diverse residential. The district is composed of different areas ranging from a fashion district to a skid row, and it is the hub of the city’s Metro rapid transit system. A study from 2013 reveals that the district is home to over 500,000 jobs. Downtown LA is indeed a busy district, but this has not stopped one family from keeping them plant their own food.
Ever thought of growing your own food but didn’t think it was possible? It’s more that possible! It might even be the way of the future. If the Dervaes family can do it while living in Los Angeles, I think you can to.
The Dervaes family live on 1/10th of an acre 15 minutes from downtown L.A.. In itself that’s not strange. What’s crazy is that they manage to maintain a sustainable and independent urban farm. Complete with animals!\
I tried to figure out how big 1/10th (0.1) of an acre is in perspective to other things . I used this website, findlotsize.com, and put markers around my ‘house.’ I got a rough estimate that mine is 0.062, but my math seems wrong since my place looks way smaller. It’s interesting to know all the same. Check it out … if you’re curious to learn what size yours is.
Here’s the video… Enjoy!
