Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

It is always possible, locally, to return to use of animal dung fertilizer, crop rotation with legumes, etc.  Won't support high population density but might not have to. Hell, I grew up milking a cow, letting most of the milk curdle and feed to the pig, keeping a few chickens and tending a large garden.  We have a working well on the property in case city water becomes problematic or too expensive for irrigation.  I didn't expect things to go to hell as fast as they have, but the wife did, (on totally other grounds.)  

Best of all, I don't need to drive much, and can still ride a bike if need be. I have always kinda dismissed the survivalists, but now....

The US is not very densely populated.
