Family Gardens

A garden not only delivers delicious fruits and vegetables, it also provides access to a variety of nutrients needed for a healthy body. You can help families learn how to grow their own food. Join the fight against malnutrition and food insecurity that is so common to many people.

Gardening Improves Families’ Health

Gardens offer a sense of pride to parents and family members as they see their children and grandchildren thriving. Training people to grow their own food combats malnutrition and helps them become self-sufficient.

Christine had been feeding her grandson a simple diet of sweet potato and cassava, with few options to provide all the nutrients he needed. After receiving training to create a garden with her husband, life has improved.

“Now I have enough good food for my grandchild,” she said. “I built it for him, and I can feed him a diversified diet. He is very healthy, and I never need to buy him medicine.”

Programs teaching families to grow their own food can help neighborhoods and communities fight food insecurity. By supporting this project, you can join the effort to improve the health of people around the world.
