Backyard gardens

Vanuatu communities access fresh vegetables from backyard gardens

The communities are Vanlimsi, Panas, Wali, Pangi, Bay Homo, Ranputor, Wanur, Londar, Bay Marteli, Point Cross, Ranwas and Bunlap.

Eleven community agroforestry nurseries were set up in the areas and families have been taking  vegetable seedlings to start their own gardens.

The nurseries are part of the Livelihood Recovery Programme in communities located around the proposed Bay Homo Community Conservation area in South Pentecost.

The main objective is to contribute to restoring local livelihood base and improve food security and nutrition.
