If a family is lucky enough to have land to cultivate, it will often grow only corn. What generally prevents crop diversification is a lack of technical expertise and seeds. Narú addresses food production on three fronts:
Helping families to create kitchen gardens - with plants and seedlings produced at our own sites - to improve their diet.
Training and starter kits to raise hens for egg production and a constant source of protein.
Agricultural training and seed provision for home consumption and income generation through local sales.
The use of locally-sourced and natural materials is promoted, together with organic cultivation that reduces the depletion of soils and avoids health risks for the grower.
