Gardens for Health International: Multiple positions open

in Jobs, Practicums/Internships
April 13th, 2017

What We Believe

We believe that growing and eating healthy food can – and must – be a part of the long-term solution to malnutrition.

The world is facing an acute food and nutrition crisis. We must meet the world’s food needs with an approach that is environmentally sustainable, recognizes the primacy of nutrition for agriculture and health and strengthens local communities.

Through our work, we are changing the way that malnutrition is treated by moving away from short-term handouts and towards equipping families with the knowledge and resources to grow their own nutritious food and improve their health. We envision a future in which the key to lasting food and nutrient security for vulnerable families lies in their own backyards.
