Gardening–and no I don’t mean the lawn service you over pay for every month–but real gardening. Harvesting food used to be an essential skill that everyone needed to know. During WWI and WWII, there was a shortage in farmers and thus less food so some countries like the U.S., Canada, United Kingdom, Australia, and Germany, campaigned for citizens to plant produce gardens in private residences. These gardens really helped with lightening up the circumstances of war by boosting morale and helping reduce pressure on the public food suppliers and banks. Could you successfully cultivate a garden healthy enough to harvest? It might be a good idea to learn considering the environmental crisis we are currently facing. Unfortunately, I can’t explain to you in a paragraph how to successfully garden, but I hope to at least boost your interest for further education on the matter, considering food is life.
