This is a fantastic question, my answer is a hope that you dig in and start a garden. At the same time direct you towards the sustainable garden methods which make it worth your time? The direct answer is this, as people learn to grow their food for themselves using sustainable methods, they become less dependant on ‘big Ag’= Big Agriculture. That alone is a plus for the environment and for the individual’s peace of mind. As well as you know what, when, and your food comes from. You also are in control of how much and the quality of the food and are not limited or rationed as some foods and other items are right now during this pandemic. I have been growing a vegetable garden for nearly 35 or 40 years, each year is something to look forward to as I try new to me vegetables that are not available in the grocery stores. Then there is the learning of a new method to produce a better harvest and with higher quality. Growing your own food gives you directly say about will I use chemicals that harm not just the environment but the health of your body. Or will you use methods that produce high quality, healthy food and at the same time improve the environment? I highly recommend John Jeavon's methods and his book ’How to Grow more vegetables’, Be sure you get the ninth edition. Than you ever thought possible on less land with less water than you can imagine. Watch how to with these great Video Grow BioINTENSIVEve..

How much wheat do I need to grow for a year supply? That depends on what you are going to make with it? But if you like bread use this method. I also recommend that you grow Enkorn wheat the original wheat that it none hybridnized and much nutrient for the buck. If you grow three garden beds 10 feet by 10 feet each, each one would be 100 square feet. For a total of 300 square feer. Each garden bed will produce enough wheat to make 17 loaves of bread or one loaf every week for 51 weeks. I learned this from Ecology Action: Home Grow Bio Intensive and I highly recommend learning this growing method. I currently grow what I term ECO garden method a step better than organic because I do not use ANY chemicals at all. I am converting more of my growing methods according to **GROW BIOINTENSIVE® Sustainable Mini-Farming. Best to your wheat-growing efforts. You are o your way to becoming a tried and true “breadwinner” at home!** This question was asked on Quora
