Food Security: The condition in which all people have physical, social, and economic access to nutritious food that meets their dietary needs to live a healthy life. (From United Nations Committee on World Food Security) Before having their own Forest Gardens, farmers were struggling to feed their families and in desperate need of help. They were planting maize, which degraded their land, and were selling crops only a couple of times a year, unable to get the nutrition they needed. Since joining the Forest Garden Program their diet has gone from grey and innutritious, grains to colorful and beneficial fruits and vegetables. We have seen in places such as Senegal, that in only 12 months, 82% of farmers were food secure in our program! Thank you for making this possible.
