The video above is important to see for two reasons. One, the canning done in it and two, it is set in NYC.
The canning is to inspire you to take up canning. Canning is relatively easy once you get the hang of it and the great thing about it, is you can have your own home grown veggies year round. Also, as it is said, it is a great gift because it is completely homemade.
The main reason that this particular video was picked is that it is set in NYC. New York City is known for having what is called Food Deserts. This is where there are no markets for several blocks, far enough away that you can't walk to them. Being able to walk to a place is very important in New York since owning a car is a luxury. These places exist mainly due to the proprietors fear of break ins. If you think this doesn't relate to Indianapolis, the Eastside of Indy has been declared as a food desert. Space is very limited, so urban gardening is also hard to do, but they do it. They find a way on roof tops or small lots in between buildings.
If the people of New York City, a food and land desert, can do urban gardening, so can you. There is more than enough space and plenty of local community gardens. Even if you have no space at all, outside or in, and your green thumb is itching, check out one of the many community gardens. And take a good look at canning because it can save you a lot of money. It is also better for you and your family than a corporations canned food.
