Grown in East POS

Food security and Livelihood Development are growing challenges for low income households in the East Port of Spain. In this vein,
The Volunteer Center of Trinidad & Tobago (VCTT) in partnership with the Global Environment Facility Small Grants Programme, WhyFarm and other agencies are joining hands to expand our pilot Community Garden initiative; launched in Gonzales in April 2018; to other communities in East Port of Spain through the Grown In East Port of Spain initiative. 
Through this initiative community members from East Port of Spain will be trained in home gardening, agripreneurship and build their professional and economic capacity through the production of value-added products from the community gardens. Products will be sold through weekend markets which will be set up in East Port of Spain on a monthly basis as well as through direct trade to supermarkets.
