Vegetable gardening initiative

Beneficiary and her garden
Beneficiary and her garden

A New part of this project is enjoining recipients of the ecosan toilets to do vegetable gardening in their backyards. This was done successfully in Libertad Municipality with 120 beneficiaries participating. The vegetables they harvested provided them with nutritious food within their reach and very cheap since they grow this themselves. The vegetables are okra, bitter gourd, moringa oleifera, tomato, radish, among others. Excess production of the vegetables they market to their neighbors. We provided them with seeds and organic fertilizer as well as technical assistance.  As a means to engage them we also implemented a vegetable gardening contest. Prizes we awarded include kitchen utensils, school supplies for the children and small animals such as pigs and goats.
