Edible Landscaping Is Food Self-Reliance
With a sudden pandemic, supplies emptied from store shelves, and the stock market crashing to levels not seen since the eighties, you might be thinking like a prepper these days. The folks who’ve been stockpiling food, water, and ammunition could have been right to prepare. But what steps can you take to become more resilient to the ever-mutating coronavirus if you’re starting now? From an ecological perspective, edible landscaping is one of the smartest investments you can make.
It’s Spring, and despite the quarantine and isolation directive we’re all under, the birdsong stands in sharp contrast to the dire warnings of the media and government. Since we’ll all be spending more time alone, now is the right time to start or get back into gardening. Food self-reliance is a good feeling, and it could become an important way to keep your loved ones healthy during this international crisis.
