Vegetable Garden in the Community

Due to the support of the Rotary Club of Hobart and a Rotary District Designated Fund grant from our district – 9830, we have been able to create four picture guides for our program partner in the Philippines.

Our program partner – The Muravah Foundation have advised “Recently we’ve launched the ” Gulayan sa Barangay” which literally means  “Vegetable Garden in the Community”.   The Muravah Foundation provides seeds and other planting materials in accordance with the Food Guide on hand provided to us in our Food Plants Solutions publications.  The Food Guide that we received from FPS is discussed in the Family Development Sessions, conducted once a month in our brand new Community Centre built by Muravah Foundation.  It will be very helpful for the parents to know the nutritional value of the food that they serve with their families.  Also it will be very beneficial to know the nutritional value of our indigenous vegetable/plants found in our area.

We extend a very big thankyou to you and your supporting Rotary Clubs in your District for such valuable information being provided through your publications.

Thankyou for your tremendous support, we really appreciate it.  The publications can be viewed at:

Publications like these can be made for any country or region.  Perhaps you, an organisation you know, your Rotary Club or district are involved with a project that would benefit from having a nutriton component added to it?

We have program partners just like The Muravah Foundation who are waiting on publications from us. And, we need your support, just like the Rotary Club of Hobart and our District – 9830, have done, to make them happen.
