Sustainability and Community
ANISHA'S KITCHEN GARDEN PROJECT
Anisha is a small rural development project located in the remote Martalli region in South India. It aims to increase the household food security of residents through promoting organic and sustainable farming practices and home kitchen gardens.
Since 2016, Anisha has been engaged in a project called the Kitchen Garden Project (KGP). This is a four-year project intended to teach approximately 1400 middle school students to grow organic kitchen gardens at their homes, as well as establishing demonstration gardens at each of the project's 23 schools. These demonstration gardens are used to train students as well as provide vegetables for the school's daily lunch. Students are taught to save the native seeds that come from their own gardens to both replant these gardens the next year and also to replenish Anisha's seed bank. Susila Dharma Australia is a proud supporter of the Kitchen Garden Project.
