Our women have embarked on raising small kitchen gardens which are are a practical and cost-effective way to meet the nutritional demands of rural households of our women, as well as increase family income. Crops are chosen based on local food preferences and climate conditions, with the goal of ensuring healthy and nutritious food for all.
The Kitchen Garden initiative played an important part in empowering rural females in Allahabad District’s three villages Nawabganj, Sahavpur and Hathgaha . These gardens gave poor, rural communities a chance to invent supplemental food production and improve their lives.
Family labour, particularly the efforts of women, is crucial in managing these gardens. It is an economically rewarding initiative thanks to the fact that it can be fought against crop losses and other negative implications thanks to the fact that these women are equipped with a reasonably low amount of knowledge and skills. Besides, organic farming practices are the most important utilisation of these gardens.
The Tree of Life Centre advocates for the creation of small kitchen gardens in order to increase nutrition security and household income. The goal is to improve the nutrition status of small and disadvantaged farmers and their families by providing them with an assorted assortment of vegetables for a period of time each year.
A kitchen garden can supply the balanced dietary requirements of rural households as well as increase family income. Crops are chosen based on food habits and climate conditions in order to ensure that sufficient healthy and nutritious food is available.Tree of Life Centre distributed seed kits, consisting of six types of vegetable seeds, to almost 90 families in Kaurihar Nawabganj and Sahavpur/ Madhsesa in Allahabad district in UP. The kit consisted of the following crops; Lauki (Bottle Gourd), Baingan (Brinjal), Lal Saag (Amaranth), Karela (Bitter Gourd), Shalgam (Turnip) and Nenua (Ridge Gourd).
