Why garden? …a way to beautify you and your surroundings

Gardening is a very worthwhile activity. Apart from its therapeutic effects, gardening allows you to grow your own food which is great for food security , especially in times of shortage.

 

With proper planning, you should be able to supplement what you now buy at the grocery store and by so doing, save money. In addition, if there is a surplus, it may be useful to preserve some food. There are a lot of free resources on the internet which teaches how to can and preserve food.

 

Another great idea is building a community and coordinating with your community members what each member will plant so that you can share produce and benefit from the right growing atmosphere- for example, tomatoes may grow better in your neighbour’s soil while cabbages may grow better on yours.

 

There are so many other thing you can do like cooking from scratch, using almost all your ingredients from your garden, saving seeds to replant, exchanging seeds with friends and neighbours and just overall becoming self- sufficient and saving money!

Who is ready to start?
