As well as large production farms, there are also countless backyard farms, where people grow enough to provide for their families and extra to sell to the community.
However, there are so many creative people up here, with great imaginations that I have no doubt that many people will find ways to still grow enough produce for their families in their private gardens, while staying within water usage standards.
We plan to build a recirculating hydroponics system (come back later for Backyard Hydro) for growing veggies and we reuse dish-water in the outside gardens. We pay for water per usage here, so I try to get the most bang for our buck!
