Nutrition Oriented Rural Education and Kitchen Gardening Programme
The project came into being for sustaining and maintaining the continuity of homestead gardens, through regular supply/availability of good quality seeds, seedlings/saplings. Another major factor assessed was the lack of knowledge amongst the target population regarding the nutritional values of different vegetables.
Promote the local based NGO entrepreneurs and village based private entrepreneurs to use and ensure the supply of seeds/saplings/seedlings related inputs and technical counseling to the beneficiaries
Develop a permanent contact person both for fellow farmers and change agents (NGO, INGO personnel).
