Huy Meng, 52, shows his organically grown cucumbers. He is able to grow abergine, cucumbers, morning glory, and cauliflower.
Meng says he makes all natural manure because it improves the life of his gardens and the quality of his food. Other community members add things to their fertilizer to help food grow faster, but the food suffers and the fields don’t yield as much.
Proeang Touch, 61, picks long beans from his garden.
He received seeds and agriculture training from Church World Service. They helped him build a small irrigation system and water pump to grow a garden. His primary crops are Chinese cabbage and watercress.
CWS provided sustainable farming training to a few local men who had very little. Now this man has a large plot land that he cultivates with seeds from CWS.
