Information On Society Garlic Care
The world population is expected to reach 9 billion by 2050. That means there will be 1.4 billion new mouths to feed!
The world’s food supply will have to increase by at least 50%. And that doesn’t even include growing more meat or dairy products!
In order for us humans to survive, we need to learn how to grow more food with less land and water resources. If we don’t, then we are going to die out as a species.
So what do you think? Do you want to live forever or not?
Or maybe you just want some extra food…
Well, if that’s the case, then it’s time to start thinking about growing your own food again! (Or eating someone else’s)
But what exactly does it mean to grow more food with less land and water resources?
Well, let me tell you.
What Is Society Garlic?
Society garlic is a type of garlic that grows naturally in areas where there isn’t enough rainfall to support other types of garlic. These areas are usually tropical regions such as South America, Africa, Australia and Asia. Most of these countries have very dry climates which makes them unsuitable for most other kinds of crops like wheat or rice.
Most people think that garlic is grown underground but this is actually not the case. True, garlic does have “roots” but these are above ground and in direct sunlight. Instead of growing underground, society garlic has a small stem with several bulb-like structures which swell up to create the cloves inside.
These cloves are then separated and dried before being sold as food in grocery stores around the world.
Grow Your Own!
If you’re feeling adventurous and are interested in growing some society garlic of your own, there are a few things you need to know first.
First of all, don’t bother buying any special equipment for this. You can grow society garlic in the same pot that your other regular garlic is growing in right now!
