SWANG / Kitchen gardens in schools/public health centres

SWANG
SWANG

Eat local. Eat fresh. Stay healthy. Ekam Foundation's Sustainable Waste Management, Awareness, and Nutrition Through Gardens (SWANG) promotes nutrition and local sustainable consumption by setting up kitchen gardens in government-funded schools, creches, primary health centres and other government facilities. The produce, more than 150 kg per harvest, was used in the mid-day noon meal scheme for the children. The waste was used to create compost, for a sustainable cycle of nutrition.
Ekam set up 41 kitchen gardens across Tamil Nadu, India in August 2019 and trained the staff of the institutions in maintaining the garden.
