In March Planet Changer purchased organic vegetable seedlings that were distributed to multiple small-holder farms. These seedlings were an improved variety that can better withstand drought and insects.
Spring is the most favorable season in Uganda for planting vegetables. These seedlings have thus far been highly successful. The plants are growing and producing well. The lives of the farmers have already begun to improve.
“the first round of vegetable seeds that we distributed to the grass root farmers are doing well and the beneficiaries are full of joy and praise of planet changer help, because with these vegetables, they are affording to meet the nutritional needs of their families in addition to getting some small money through the sell of these vegetables. since then, many farmers have appealed to me to give them more vegetable seeds and i have been telling them that i tabled their request to planet changer. in the first round, hundreds of farmers in each region were left out as the first round could not purchase enough seeds to cover all of them. In the second round, am proposing that thousand of farmers can be covered.” ~Moses Wiseman, Ugandan Farmer and Planet Project Coordinator
Join Planet Changer in empowering Ugandan Farmers to create sustainable food sources for their families and surrounding communities. $1000 will complete our effort to provide all of the farmers we are currently working with a first round of seedlings.
100% of all public donations will go to the project or fund that the donor designates (minus transaction cost, if applicable).
This is one of the communities that will receive seedlings. Join us in empowering these families to feed their children and implement sustainable hunger solutions for their community. See additional pictures here.
