A learning community committed to Growing Health.
Whether you’re looking to grow a few vegetables in your backyard, for your community or you want to increase your overall health and immunity, our courses and certifications will help you find the healthier ‘you’.
Our courses are structured according to the four pillars of Thrive and our proven Life Gardens methodology. Every pillar in our Growing Health methodology is essential — if one is missing, then the others lose their impact and potential for transformation and change.
Organic and sustainable techniques (no chemicals or inputs) are used to grow food throughout the year, requiring minimal water. Each standard Life Garden project can sustain the nutrition needs for approximately 40 people.
Health is a symphony of different foods for nutrition. Indigenous crops that were planted before mono-cropping are rediscovered, and a variety is grown to engage a holistic approach to enhance the heart, joints and the immune system significantly. A standard garden diet produces maximum nutrition for a high standard of health – in any developing country.
Each community garden includes a portion of medicinal plants. They are used to prevent and treat diseases. Indigenous plants can be used for burns, diarrhea, anti-bacterial treatment, malaria prevention, and HIV/AIDS treatment. This is life-saving in areas with minimal medical support, common to the rural poor.
When community members are growing their own nutritious food, and as a result are healthy and not burdened with continuous diseases, the world of opportunity opens. We provide training to help recognize that higher value, organic crops can create better profits and when utilizing sustainable methods, they are protected from market influences. Naturally, they decide to expand their efforts.
