I have never been much of a fan of heinberg (and i sortuh know the whole situation in that area---he was teaching in SF mission district when i lived there (a little before hard core gentrification---of course it was expensive since i just had a low salary doing mathematical biology---i was near the tool n die punk club, and i rented a room from ex-cholos (low riders))---50$/month.

What's wrong with Heinberg? He tends toward catastrophic visions but so does the US and German Defence Departments. .... and they're not necessarily wrong.But he does seem to be quite naive about exactly what it takes to set up a homestead garden. It could be as easy as he implies it is if one assumes plenty of water, flat land and fertile soil.
