This week on The Local Update we’re facing the realities of Corona virus and working on growing all our own food.

Graham Farram shares with us some stories about what people were eating around this region when times were tough in the past. I’m also joined by Kathleen McCann, a permaculture gardener from Tanja to look at what we should be growing in these times.

If you’re interested in learning more about Permaculture then Kathleen is happy to chat. You’ll find plenty of great resources on youtube, Kathleen’s recommendation was Morag Gamble. You’ll find plenty of tips and tricks on her youtube channel. I’ll check in with Kathleen again soon and we might start doing some regular segments on things like no-dig garden beds.
