Strengthening Food Security
Vertical Vegetable Gardens – La Leonera School, Cali
With global food shortages on the rise it is imperative to find alternate methods of increasing food production to support food security.
Vertical farming can be beneficial in providing populations the means to feed themselves whilst encouraging youth to pursue sustainable development.
At the Leonera School in Cali we were thrilled to have completed our first vertical garden project, purchasing seeds and containers for 143 families
allowing them to build their own vegetable gardens. Our on the ground volunteers along with the parents and children joyfully spent days sorting
seed packages, erecting vertical gardens and planting seeds. Today a deep sense of satisfaction is present amongst the community as they begin to notice the
fruits of their labor
Outdoor Gardening - John F Kennedy School - Bolivia
A similar project at the John F Kennedy School in Bolivia,Caldas provided the tools and seeds for families to plant their own vegetable gardens
in their back yards.
We are close to seeing the first harvest and will continue to monitor their progress and provide more supplies as required.
