A vegetable garden can be both an emergency food source and a stockpile in the event of a disaster.

Food is an essential part of our lives. Foodstuffs may become unavailable due to various factors, such as distribution stoppages caused by disasters, food shortages due to food scarcity, and difficulty in leaving the house due to pandemics. It is important to “stockpile” food on a daily basis in case of emergencies, and one option is a home vegetable garden.

In addition to the emergency rations that you usually stockpile, we recommend a vegetable garden for emergencies.

Vegetable gardens are not a problem even during power outages.

In the event of a power outage, fresh produce stored in the refrigerator will spoil, but vegetables grown in a vegetable garden do not have to worry about power outages, which is an advantage.

Even beginners can get started right away.

Even if you don’t have a garden, it is relatively easy to try your hand at growing vegetables on your balcony in planters or indoors.

Examples of vegetables grown

・Bitter gourd
・Bean seedlings

There are many other vegetables that can be grown in addition to those listed above. Choose the vegetables that suit you best and enjoy the harvest.

As one of the rolling stock

Rolling stock is a cyclical stockpiling method in which you usually hoard a large amount of food and processed foods and replenish them only as you use them, but by including the option of growing and harvesting your own emergency food in addition to buying it at the store, you can diversify risk.

Stress Relief

A vegetable garden offers a variety of experiences, including the joy of watching the vegetables grow on a daily basis and the sense of accomplishment when harvesting the vegetables you have grown. Best of all, it is a great way to nourish your diet during emergencies, when nutrition tends to be unbalanced.
