The Sweet Smell of Victory

How Gardeners Are Drawing on History to Help During the COVID-19 Pandemic

With many people staying close to home during the coronavirus pandemic, gardening has become popular, specifically vegetable gardens. COVID-19 has led to high unemployment, causing food banks to be overwhelmed, so people are growing food not only to feed their families but also to help their communities. It’s an old idea reborn to meet the moment.

Check out the interview with Grow and Give gardeners in the Golden Plains Area following a macroburst event in June, 2020.
