I rented a small plot of land and try to motivate people to grow their own food. I have been trying to set up a community with a gift economy in mind. Each person grows one crop and we trade with each other and sell off the extra harvest. The money would go back into the community.

So far, after over a year of trying to get people together, nobody has joined. I have taught people how to grow and get some help here and there, but nobody ever stays for even one full harvest.

I am just trying to live by example. Show people that even living in the city you can still be self sustainable.
