Urban Gardens

A government video explains a program to get people to start growing their own food in a urban setting. It includes donations of seeds.

This seems like a great idea for more than the obvious food self-sufficiency reason. Here are other reasons:

  • If you are growing your own food, you can decrease your contact with others decreasing the posibility of infection
  • Gardening at home gives you something to do thus decreasing the social impact of the toque de queda
