I know from experience of living on a commune in the 1980's that a bunch of artists and poets can grow a vast surplus of food on a couple acres with minimal, ie 10-15ish hours a week of labor.

Realistically you would plan to supplement canning and root cellar with bulk foods such as beans and rice in winter unless the climate permits a year-round growing season.

But wouldn't it be great if vacant lots and right-of-ways could be turned to communal farming and food became plentiful and local?
