Small yard container gardening: to be multiplied for all the hungry and malnourished (Jojo ROM / Willem VAN COTTHEM)
Surfing over a multitude of photos on Facebook, I discovered today some magnificent photos of Jojo ROM’s yard (The Philippines) in which a huge number of containers with vegetables are displayed.
I can’t resist recommending to multiply this “success story” (best practice) for the one billion hungry of this world.
Jojo recycled all the containers he could find, filled them with his own potting mix, seeded and planted. The result is astonishingly fantastic : heaps of vegetables and fruits with a minimum of irrigation water, a lot of money saved (high prices on the market), better health of his family.
No wonder that Jojo’s fame in he Philippines is quickly growing. A lot of followers, setting up their own container garden, has already been registered.
Tell your friends and interested decision-makers that this is one of the best techniques to solve the worldwide hunger problem.
