Help families grow nutritious food and crops to sell at market.
In Central America, soil depleted by decades of slash-and-burn farming leaves families with little to no resources. Many families live on a very limited diet of one or two basic foods – not nearly enough to provide the nutrition necessary to maintain good health.
Sustainable Harvest International teaches families how to grow a diverse food supply and marketable crops through a hands-on five phase program teaching organic gardening and how to raise chickens. This program also helps install environmentally friendly stoves which use 50% less wood than traditional stoves and reduce the amount of smoke and carbon in the home. Families improve their nutrition levels, become self-sufficient, and overcome poverty., or selling them to support the local school.
