Panjim is fortunate to have a number of gardens located through the city. These gardens have the potential to be hubs for people to grow food locally. Instead of having hedges and lawns, why not grow banana trees along the edges of the gardens, and brahmi as ground cover. Grow karela and tendli along the walls and have bushes of spinach within the garden. We can also grow potatoes, moringa, mulberry, love apples, star fruit and even turmuric. Panjim’s parks can be places for people to meet and eat from. Panjim can also use some of the compost it generates to ensure that the food grown is completely organic. It could also be a great way to generate employment during the lockdown.
