Kailyaird: Good Supplement to their family diet…



A Kitchen garden ensures an inexpensive, regular and handy supply of fresh vegetables and fruits which are basic to nutrition. The green vegetables contain vitamins and minerals which protect us against several diseases. The tribal people normally depend upon shifting cultivation and use the cultivated cereals in their food. All the people are not able to purchase vegetables for their consumption. Though the cereals are rich in fibre, vitamins etc. which give energy to the body but vegetables are also barely necessary for the body for developing the immunity power.

So, in order to supplement in their food consumption,100 farmers have supported seedlings of Papaya Banana, Drumstick, Small gourd and  1 pocket seeds of Spinach, Cowpea and Ridge gourd under the project " Sustainable Agriculture For Tribal Farmers " supported by Centre for World Solidarity (CWS).

Whatever they will harvest from their kitchen garden, it will be added to their food basket. Each farmer has received the seeds and seedlings with a cheer on his face and with a promise of nurturing the seedlings to develop into plants and using of the vegetables in their fooding.
