A woman shows the lettuce in an urban garden in the slum of Catia in Caracas, Venezuela July 13, 2016. In the first data on the new push, Maduro's government boasts that in the last three months, some 135,000 Venezuelans have produced 273 tonnes of vegetables, fruits and herbs in urban settings. The production seems well short of this year's goal of 3,500 tonnes, but some participants are enthusiastic.

A general view of an urban garden in the slum of Catia in Caracas, Venezuela July 13, 2016. "If all communities began to cultivate, it would help to combat the high cost of living and food shortages," said 69-year-old Luisana Galvis, a retired administrator who helps produce 30 different types of vegetable on a state-owned plot in a west Caracas slum. Critics, though, say the project is laughably inadequate given the scale of Venezuela's problems, and absurd in a vast and fertile nation that was once a major exporter of coffee.

A placard that reads, "Growing house Hugo Chavez", is seen in an urban garden in Caracas, Venezuela July 13, 2016. Even some who have long grown their own food are dubious of Maduro's efforts to help solve Venezuela's unprecedented crisis by emulating their city gardens. "It's illogical to have a grand plan for urban agriculture given how fertile the land is in Venezuela," said Omar Sharam, owner of the upmarket Casa Bistro restaurant which cultivates many of its own ingredients on a city plot.

Tomato plants are seen in a greenhouse on the rooftop of a building in Caracas, Venezuela June 22, 2016. Oil gradually took over Venezuela's economy since its discovery here a century ago and now makes up 94 percent of foreign income. That has led to the neglect of other sectors, including agriculture, and made Venezuela dependent on imports. Vast swathes of arable land are underused.

Since Maduro was elected three years ago to succeed the late socialist leader Hugo Chavez, his popular mentor, Venezuela's economy has deteriorated rapidly with a deep recession and widespread shortages. Mobs outside shops screaming, "We want food!" and hoping for limited bags of pasta and rice have become commonplace across the South American country of 30 million.
