Kitchen gardens are homemade gardens that provide families a way to access clean food while providing them with a source of income.
Countries in Poverty
Countries in Central America, specifically Belize, Honduras and Panama, have been struggling with poverty for years. In these countries, 39% of the entire population earns less than $4 a day. This leads to difficult access to food and a hard time maintaining a steady income. Kitchen gardens can help solve both of these issues.
In order to start and maintain one of these gardens, supplies such as soil, plants, and a clean area are needed. Without these resources the kitchen garden project would not be able to benefit these families in need. In having these resources families are able to create flourishing gardens to provide them with a steady source of income and clean food to reduce the effects of poverty in their surrounding area. Kitchen gardens can give hope for future generations to have an improved quality of life.
The countries of Belize, Honduras, and Panama have been struggling in poverty for years. They also face environmental devastation in the forms of drought and air and water pollution. With the benefits of kitchen gardens the income of these families can increase drastically, pulling them out of poverty and toward a better way of life while also providing a sustainable food source in their backyard.
