I was rethinking the Farm in a box and went back to the page. He said food for 1 year. I think that is way underestimated. If you plan out your growing space and practice good holistic gardening techniques you could keep that area growing almost indefinitely. By practicing crop rotation, cover crops, letting areas rest and good soil management there is no reason you couldn't keep a garden going for years. Yes you will have bad years, but with good planning you can mitigate those times and still have a decent yield. I think he also forgot about seed saving as well. you could have 2-3 years worth of seed as well packed into the container and preserved for long term storage and use.
