FRIEND Fiji Covid-19 response – Backyard gardening

The ‘Promoting Nutritious Food Systems in the Pacific Islands’ (Innov4AgPacific) Project supported the Foundation for Rural Integrated Enterprises and Development (FRIEND) in Fiji to implement the ‘Garden to Plate – Integrated Backyard Gardening for a Holistic Approach to Income and Health’ initiative.

FRIEND is a recognised partner on Food security and serves on the National Food and Nutrition Cluster and works closely with Ministry of Agriculture to upscale backyard gardening for health, livelihood and food security in response to COVID 19. FRIENDs model backyard program supported by Innov4AgPacific has been recognised by the Government as a strategy to prevent food insecurity in this time of crisis.

This video is part of FRIENDs efforts to document and share good practice; specifically, the successful 9×9 model organic garden model, healthy recipes, cooking techniques and gardening practices.
