Change any unused space in your home into an edible garden . Your terrace , balcony , window sill etc... over the next few weeks let's grow together, share our experiences, learn from our mistakes and by the end of it be proud that we can feed ourselves.

 Samantha Akkineni added, "And god forbid if there is ever another lockdown we will not be the ones running to the store panic buying .. because in the words of Ron Finley we would be 'Gangsta Gardeners' by then ... so who's with me ... #GrowWithMe."
