Distribution of vegetable seedlings for backyard gardeners.

Michelle Frances Sayre Uy – Organic Container Gardening by Poor Women

Date grant awarded: November 22, 2019

Michelle Frances Uy will mobilize 220 women members who will be trained on organic vegetable gardening using open-pollinated vegetable seeds that can be reused during the following planting cycle. Her training will include producing organic fertilizer, using recycled containers, recycling kitchen water, and constructing organic concoctions.

“When I see that their backyards are prepared, I will provide vegetable seeds depending on their choice what to plant and the size of their gardens. Then home-cooking training will follow. I aim to improve health, nutrition and food security of our communities by promoting vegetable gardening.”
