i want to seed a productive food producer plant that will grow well without my treatment

disclaimer: i am not a gardener and have poor experience with it.

i thought about the idea growing my own food for the first time yesterday. i was delightful from the positive impact on the environment it can lead to, in terms of sustainability. i am going to start grow biointensively at home, but i have also seen the potential of something i can experiment simultaneously; there is a large piece of land in distance of two minutes from my house. honestly i just feel bad for the place to be wasted while i can do something good for the environment(im a climate activist). i need a suggestion for some plant i can seed there so i can come there one day and be glad from all the crops.

    You can't plant stuff or sow seed on land you don't own.

    Nettles.

    Good for the environment. 

    Food plant for butterfly and moth larvae.
    Food plant for aphids - will attract birds to eat them.
    Rich in nitrogen - a soil enhancer.
    Rich in vitamin C  - Spinach substitute.

    But as Fairy says, stick to what belongs to you. How do you know what the owner of the land intends to happen on it? What looks like wasted land to you might be a rich source of something you don’t know about.

    You don't stop doing new things because you get old, you get old because you stop doing new things. <3

    I wondered that too @fidgetbones, but I was also wondering about a potential advert  ;)
