The Greenhouse Project
The greenhouse was built as a pilot project in 2012 using low-cost and affordable materials. It is used to produce non-native crops that are in turn sold at market to generate an income. The objective is to show community members that they, too, can produce plants for sale and not just for their own subsistence.
A variety of vegetables are grown in the greenhouse, such as green peppers, broccoli and onions – as well as tomatoes, which present a genuine challenge!
