The backyard gardening project to encourage communities to eat healthier is showing pleasing results. The project was started last year after surveys revealed that most families in our target communities were heavily reliant on highly processed supermarket foods that along with weighing heavily on already stretched finances, was also damaging their health. While most of the gardens had suffered substantial damages during Cyclone Mick late last year, January saw people back tending to their gardens in efforts to make them grow again. FRIEND is hopeful of extending its Backyard gardening project in the coming months.
