It's come to this: the flowers in Regent's Park in London may soon be replaced by vegetables.
The park may be divided up into parcels so that city residents can grow their own vegetables. In the Guardian newspaper, Sam Jones quotes parks' executive Colin Buttery as saying, "We very much want to support the idea of people growing their food by doing small-scale demonstrations." His idea was actually inspired by the communal vegetable gardens that have been created in many US cities.
Jones quotes sustainable foods expert Ben Reynolds, of Sustain as saying, if food shortages and prices continued increasing, and climate change gets worse, "We'll get people saying 'Well, bugger this, if I can't get the food I want, I'll grow it myself.'"
