    prickly pear cactus may grow there, they should also have the perfect grass for raising black angus, also for the fresh water supplies should be able to grow spirulina algae used by the Incas I believe as a food source, Blue agave from Mexico may also grow there havnt checked the climate there. Just a suggestion

    Talpia fish can be crammed into small areas grow fast and are pretty good eating
  • mox101 3y

    book called back to the basics should be helpful.
  • mox101 3y

    If I knew the zone, natural resources, and soil I could look some things up, have studied solar, windmills, sub-terrain housing, as well as hay built houses
  • mox101 3y

    book called square foot gardening or cube foot gardening may also be helpful if you want everyone to be self sustained, sludge from the sewage plant if one is put in should be able to upgrade soil content.
  • mox101 3y

    everyone should own, 2 chickens per family member, rabbit hutches and rabbits, pigeons then you can concentrate on dry wheat for food and not raise so many cattle, goats produce more milk for their size than cattle and will eat about anything, if you could set up square foot gardening and get everyone to grow a different kind of crop you could instate a barter system as long as nobody gets greedy and thinks their crop is worth more than someone elses.
  • mox101 3y

    if your not going to have a sewage plant the manure from the goat, chickens, pigeons and rabbits along with any none meat table scraps could be used for composting.
  • mox101 3y

    a dump site could also be used for composting along with the benefit of methane gas production and the compost could be sold also compost produces heat if you could tap into that should be able to get some geo-electric

    I would get vitamin C from the prickley pear cactus, omega vitamins from the fish, iron from the meat and the B vitamins you can pick up most of the other vitamins from gardening crops, along with fiber, milk, cheese and meat come from the goats but to stay small scale I would only raise them for milk and cheese, hides should probably be traded to africa or mexico, for clothing as not to over pollute such a small water source, I would drill a central well in each town and put up a tower for gravity feed, I would keep technology small, dry wheat along with Angus cattle and hides could also be traded to Asian countries for rice, and bamboo, and some minor timber, I would stay out of areas that have Pandas and endangered species, oil is coming to an end and Blue Agave makes an excellent alcohol along with cactus, hemp may grow there as well can be used for rope and clothing also to be traded, I would stay away from plastic except in the shipping crates to many harmful insects moving around, USA could trade recycled plastics for alcohol and Japan could start making cars that run on alcohol, havnt studied rice to much may be a dry rice also which again makes alcohol, I would do all this listening to music to keep up morale of the people.
    But what do I Know Im Crazy lol. IF I COULD TURN BACK TIME I WOULD FIND A WAY CHER
