Growing greens, feeding families
Food gardens are part of everyday life in this area, providing food for families without regular employment. Pastos Verdes grows vegetables and breeds poultry to help feed the boys in the children’s home and those in need in our community, helping to alleviate hunger and malnutrition. Some families use the land to grow their own crops, while others are given occasional employment to tend the food garden. The maize mill is a blessing to the local community who use it at cost priceto produce flour for their staple diet of xima.
