Sibling with: Slow Food Gastrikland Convivium, SwedenThe Wonadia women’s community garden covers 320 m2. A group of about a dozen women aged between 40 and 60 years old tend the garden. This group’s history goes back twenty years, but unfortunately, it fell apart because some of the members failed to understand. Basically, this garden was set up to promote food self-sufficiency in the village. Initially it was a cooperative with pretty much the same philosophy as Slow Food’s: producing and eating locally. Thanks to information and sensitising initiated by the Solidarité-Entraide des Jumeaux Association in the village, the group took on Slow Food’s vision to achieve the same results. The beneficiaries use traditional techniques concerning irrigation for watering and bird and livestock manure for fertilising. The women grow tomatoes, aubergines and gombo. All the food is for improving family nutrition.
