Much of the diet in the Zaka region of Zimbabwe consists of sadza, a thickened porridge made of maize meal. Though it may prevent starvation, it fails to deliver the nutrients essential to good health and disease prevention.
We teach families to grow a variety of fruits, vegetables and herbs and encourage a return to some of the traditional high-nutrient crops, such as millet, that used to be widely grown and consumed in Zimbabwe. Our goal is to equip people to nourish their families with wholesome food that builds health and immunity to disease.
