Comoros Islands Food Gardens

Help coordinate 50 family food gardens and a community garden to serve 10 elderly individuals over the course of 12 months.

A community-led effort that empowers Comoros Island citizens with skills needed to create and sustain family food gardens and community gardens

Overview

In conjunction with the Anjouan Island government in the Comoros Islands and Earth Rights Institute, the Comoros Islands Family Food Gardens will help coordinate 50 family food gardens and a community garden to serve 10 elderly individuals over the course of 12 months.  Seeds, seedlings, breeding pairs of small animals, animal hutches, and gardening, protection and coverage materials will be provided to each family.  A garden training program will train locals to construct a sustenance garden by sustainably cultivating local varieties of fruits and vegetables.  Additionally, a nutrition training program will educate and empower local residents on good health habits and the nutritional values of indigenous fruits and vegetables.  This project will assist with achieving four United Nation’s Global Goals—Zero Hunger (#2), Good Health and Well-Being (#3), Life on Land (#15), and Responsible Consumption & Production (12).
