Support and donate to our community micro food gardens. We are piloting micro food gardens with 20 households in Golden Shower, Payatas. Our goal is to eventually replicate this in different communities and present micro food gardening as a viable strategy for food security among the urban poor.
With your support, we will be able to:
Provide the households a garden starter kit that includes organic soil, vermicompost, rainwater catchment, and cuttings of organic vegetables that they will grow
training and guidance on urban food gardening over a 16-week program including topics on plant and soil nutrition, composting, seed saving, plant concoctions, and healthy food preparation.
At the end of the 16 weeks, Good Food will start buying their surplus vegetables to donate to another food-insecure community and kickstart another cycle of communities growing their own food. The community also has the option to use their surplus vegetables to sell to neighboring communities or as cooked food in community carinderia. Either way, we would like to help provide the means to create another form of livelihood for these communities.
