How much land does a man need, and what should he do with that land when he gets it? In episode 34 of the JMB Podcast Ed Butler, Christopher Russell and I discuss a simple, low-tech life on the land. I recount a story by Leo Tolstoy titled “How Much Land Does A Man Need” and we discuss some the needs of humans and how they can be obtained relatively cheaply from the land. These needs include food, water, shelter, warmth, and recycling your refuse.
