St. Kitts and Nevis Backyard Gardening Facebook Group

The St. Kitts and Nevis Backyard Gardening Facebook Group is an initiative by The Ripple Institute SKN and the Caribbean Youth Environment Network. The theme of this initiative is “Greening Communities Through Food Production” and its aim is to increase food security. The objectives of the St. Kitts & Nevis Gardening Facebook Group are to create awareness about Kitchen (Backyard) Gardening (https://www.facebook.com/groups/631055511126237/), promote the growing of fresh and safe vegetables without the use of synthetic pesticides, encourage community bartering of fresh produce and other garden related materials, promote sustainable farming in communities and generate supplemental incomes. By doing these, there will be an improvement in food security, Healthy living through physical activities from garden activities and diet, reduced food waste through conservation and compost, easy access to fresh and safe produce, and a source of income. It is our hope that anyone who demonstrates an interest in gardening and a willingness to teach others about the importance and benefits of gardening, will be a part of our cause. Examples of the type of gardening being practised include: Vegetables/ Kitchen Gardening and Vertical Gardening.
