The Minister of Agriculture and Livestock, Senley Levi Filualea, has urged people to make gardens as part of food security during this coronavirus pandemic.
“Speaking in Parliament during the motion to extend the State of Public Emergency to four months on Wednesday, Filualea said what this health pandemic is teaching us is to be self-reliant.
“Our heavy reliance on imported food will put our people’s lives at risk of starvation,” Filualea said.
“If this disease continues to create more restrictions in the countries where we source our food there will be short supply of food for our people,” he added.”
