Student Micro-gardening Successes in The Gambia
The GAMHORT Micro-gardening program focuses on nutrition and income generation for the poor in urban and peri-urban areas and communities in The Gambia. Program participants are schoolchildren, disabled persons, people living with HIV/AIDS, and underemployed youth and women. They grow a variety of vegetables on table tops, using a new soilless production technology called micro-gardening. They improve their health by consuming these vegetables, and sell excess produce to tourist hotels for income.
