This chapter introduces different explanations for high rates of growing and sharing food outside the market system in the Czech Republic based in social anthropological research. The authors have extended that work with their own qualitative and quantitative research over a period of six years in the Czech Republic, and here present findings that confirm the contribution that food self-provisioning is making to both the social and ecological sustainability.
