Children + Gardening = Nutrition + life skills + lifestyle

Finding affordable vegetables in Mongolia can be challenging, especially if you are a child center (and orphanage) caring for abandoned children.  Lotus Child Center in Ulaanbaatar has started a gardening program which will teach gardening skills and produce healthy products to feed the more than 20 children and their caretakers.

The Sovereign Harbour Rotary Club of East Sussex England caught the vision and raised funds which were matched by their district and are working with The Bayanzurkh 100 Rotary Club of Ulaanbaater to coordinate the Project.  These funds will buy tools, seeds and equipment for the Garden.  Rotarian Anne Hardy from the Sovereign Harbour club volenteered at the Center in April & May 2011 through New Choice Mongolia.

The growing season in Mongolia is short and the long term goal is to construct a green house to extend the growing season.

In a previous project the Bayanzurkh 100 Club collaborated to drill a well to supply the children with clean water.
