Summary

This project will promote Horticulture through Sustainable Gardening and the use of organic farming processes to help enrich the diets of Orphans and Vulnerable Children (OVC). Horticulture as a practice- specifically, growing fruits and vegetables - provides critical nutrients for a balanced diet. Diets low in fruits and vegetables contribute significantly to some of the world's most widespread and debilitating nutrient-related disorders.
