Guest post by Berhane, an Ethiopian mother
Before ChildFund gave us training about the importance and the necessity of backyard gardening, I didn’t know how to do or understand the benefit.
Today my family and I are not only enjoying our garden but we are even making a profit from the product we raise.
There is a big demand for the vegetables. The prices increased. Therefore, we all make sure the garden is kept well and taken care to give the products.
We are eating different vegetables according to the seasons and our diet has improved. The income from these products supports us to buy school materials for the children.
