Did you know…

In 2014, The Greenhouse Project provided 4,000 pounds of vegetables to local Food Banks and to the Carson High School Culinary program. To meet the growing need for fresh vegetables, this project will expand access and support local fresh food systems for those in need, and promote healthy eating. It will continue providing job-training skills for young adults, including special needs students.

Opportunities for smallholder farmers:

Did you know…

According to Marco International Inc. (2008), forty-seven percent of Ethiopian children under five years are chronically malnourished.
Purpose: to target 900 Ethiopian smallholder men and women farmers to increase vegetable production, to engage them in preservation to reduce post-harvest loss, and to link marketing knowledge with production decisions. This, in turn, will improve livelihoods, income, household nutrition, and opportunities to acquire new skills and technology.

Sustainability Enabling Smallholders:
Did you know…

Forty to fifty percent of horticultural crops produced in developing countries are lost before they can be consumed.
We enable 1500 Ethiopian smallholder fruits producers to use hybrid renewable energy drying technologies to transfer fresh produce into new cash crops as dried fruits. These technologies would help reduce post-harvest loss of fruits, support smallholder farmers to generate a sustainable income, create new skills, and economic opportunities for the region.
