Key-Hole Garden Farmers Project [Malealea, 10/30/2017-10/31/2017]

A Key-Hole Garden is a distinctive type of efficient plot that reduces strain and water consumption. The Malealea Development Trust has formed a society of primarily elderly women in the community who are vulnerable to malnutrition. MDT Field Workers teach these women how to keep Key-Hole Gardens, which helps them grow enough to feed themselves and sell some of their extra crops. I visited the home of a successful Key-Hole Gardener, an elderly woman caring for her orphaned grandson, as well as a Key-Hole Gardening workshop at Malealea’s community center. These photos were commissioned for the MDT’s website and a Facebook recruitment campaign.Β
