Sol-Haven is ideally placed to offer support, inspiration and education to those who seek a little more self-reliance. This post tells of how one permaculture site has responded to the COVID-19 pandemic. As panic buying led to empty supermarket shelves, people became understandably concerned about food security. Many have become interested for the first time in ‘growing their own’ as sales of vegetable seeds online have soared and even poultry keeping reportedly increased. Sol-Haven are one of the organisations in their locality that prepare and cook food for homeless people and also provide online support to people due to lockdown, helping people stay mentality stimulated and physically active.
