What were your biggest successes this season?

Eat What You Grow Project was a four months( Jan-April 2018) youth led agriculture program that empowered ten young garden farmer through extension capacity building and seeds support. Youth Bridge received hundred ( 100.00) United States Dollars but will two dollars deducted for wiring fees ( 100-2.00= 98.00) from Seed Money-USA for the Eat What You Grow Project. The Project was indeed a great success. The project success can be tired to the following:
1.Ten young garden farmers gained knowledge and skills understanding in soil testing and season calendar
2.Ten young garden farmers received seeding for their garden work.
4.Increased in vegetable production in Soul Clinic community
4. Formation of community gardener network to promote peace and unity

What challenges did or does your project face?

In-despite of the project successes, the project greatest challenge was funding. ninety eight (98.00) united dollars was very little for the project.

How are you working to overcome them?

Youth Bridge is seeking support and funding from other would-be donors. The farmers were also trained to save/store some of their seeds for the next garden season.

What did you or your project learn this season that might be useful to others as well?

Beneficiaries of Eat What You Grow Project learn the culture of seed saving for future farming season. Farmers or gardeners must learn to save or keep some of their seeds for the future.
