Learning About Seed-Saving

During the reported period, 2 newly formed groups (with a total of 36 women) participated in an introduction to sustainable agriculture training and seeds support including a one-day orientation to discuss the importance of sustainable agriculture.

Topics included techniques of planting and harvesting vegetables and crops. ASHA also took the opportunity to distribute a variety of seeds to the participants. Staff provided, and continues to provide, regular technical assistance to the groups, specifically to support seed-saving methods.

36 women are now growing crops such as pumpkin, beans, cauliflower, tomato, wheat millet, chilies, cabbage, radish, and carrot. Thanks to your support! And with more support, ASHA can reach even more women, and more families in this region of Nepal.
