Udayan Creates Second Kitchen Garden

Over the past 18 months Debu, Udayan’s gardener, has been turning a piece of un-used waste land at Udayan into a second kitchen garden to make the home for children affected by leprosy even more self sufficient. 18 months after the original idea to utilise this piece of land, he has managed to grow a beautiful crop of okra also known as ladies fingers!

It’s a big achievement because of water logging in this area. A number of banana trees are also growing quickly and show promise of a great crop!

February 2019 – The beginnings of the vegetable garden
