Pic not related at all, I'd say. That pic's from Seymour, who was writing on self-sufficiency in the UK. As much as I like that book, the whole part on farming is not applicable to northern africa.
I don't know to much on tunisia either (other than that it seems to be even worse than germany, judging by how many beggars come from there). But in general, the easiest way to become self-sufficient is based around animals that don't need to be fed. Bees work anywhere, while sheep and goats can be used in areas where the state or private people will give you free grazing (or in some cases, even pay you) in order to control undergrowth. Get a few, sell the products and increase their numbers. Once you have enough money saved, get some land for farming and living on.
For example, I'm keeping bees. Started with one hive (and lost it in the first winter), then three years later, I had 15, and a yearly harvest worth 1500-2000€. And if I wanted to (and was willing to skip one harvest, and buy enough boxes), I could turn those into 150 hives within a single year, and make ~20000€ on honey and 15000 on selling bees. In germany, that'd be barely enough to live off. Especially as you don't need to pay tax unless you harvest honey from more than 70 hives or have another source of income. And even with a secondary income, you'd still need to pay tax on 1000€ at most
An aquaintance started with two goats, grazing on public land. Last time I met him, he had 4 adult goats, a number of (goat) kids and was providing milk and christmas roasts for his whole extended family. With no investments other than the butcher checking the meat (legally required in germany if you give the meat to people not living in your house) and the electric fence.>>1841981>amerimutt who hasn't yet figured out that this is an international board

Nah, it's referencing older UK laws where you could graze and collect firewood on public land.
