Does Your Park Feed You? – new study shows that public green space could fight food scarcity

Food scarcity is one of the big concerns in the climate crisis. Most people don’t live in an rural area so they probably think that they can’t grow their own food but it turns out that growing food in the city on empty land and it could feed a lot of people.

A new study found that growing fruit and vegetables on just 10% of available city land could feed 15% of a the city’s population in Sheffield. This could go a long way to helping food scarcity worries. This land could come from parks, empty lots, and even rooftops.

Many existing small gardens and lawns in the tested area could be converted right away. Even though this is based on a very particular area of the world. Other places could absolutely look at turning their existing green spaces into food producing sites for the betterment of the people that live there.

Donyae’s love for technology is based on a need to survive our future robotic overlords. Know thy enemy as you know yourself. But since even odds are on the zombie future, she has also learned how to prepare squirrel. You can find her on Facebook until the robots – or zombies – rise up.
