Food security tip – Grow food in your home lawns

There is an urgent argument to be made for us all to become more dependent on food that is grown locally and that can be easily accessible within a particular community. Particularly so, easy to perish food, such as fresh fruits and vegetables.

Well, four young adults, three university graduates and a university student, that are among the first cohort of our project: “Mentoring Young Adults into Innovators” have innovated; and have taken on the challenge of producing food locally. Enon and Ezra are making sure that the grounds at our Lira Learning Centre are maintained, while at the same time are used to implement their “Food in Lawns” project. They have begun to grow vegetables and fruits for the market.

This is a pilot project to explore how to make changes in our mentoring programme. The innovations of these young adults have inspired a re-think of our mentoring programme, which, because of COVID-19 preventative measures, we can no longer deliver in the original format for which it was designed.
