Under the direction of Mr. Sonny Vandi, a huge vegetable garden has been planted on the RHCI land next to the Birth Waiting Home. In addition, fruit trees, including mango, orange, banana, plantain and coconut trees have been planted and will provide healthy food in several years.
The long term plan is for the farming project to provide much of the food for the residents and staff of the Birth Waiting home and possibly to sell at the market in Tikonko or Bo.
Mr. Vandi, is a master farmer from Tikonko, having worked in agriculture in Liberia in the past. He and three other men are providing the labor. By August, the produce from the vegetable garden should be available.
