Well, you could have people work X number of hours per week
in return for equal harvest.

You could have people work different amounts per week in return
for a proportionate share.  It helps if you have someone really
good at math to figure this out every week.  Very time consuming.

Or you could go with a New York City model which gives each person
a 4 foot by 6 foot plot.  With a 6-8 month growing season, 110
pounds of vegetables can be grown, and about 180 pounds for a 12 month season
if the food is grown biointensively.
