Our Community of Practice
Together we grow collective power.
Our Garden Toolkit
This toolkit includes the different learning modules we developed with our partners and volunteers to help facilitate the collective learning needed to create the micro food gardens in our pilot site, Golden Shower, Payatas, Quezon City. Written and conducted in Filipino, these are:
- Introduksyon sa Agroecology (Introduction to Agroecology)
- Lupa, Pataba at Pagtatanim (Soil Health and Plant Health)
- Pagtatabi ng Binhi (Seed Saving)
- Pagluto ng Masustansyang Pagkain (Healthy Cooking)
These modules included handouts, supplemented with video tutorials, given mobility restrictions and social distancing requirements. However, we learned over the course of the project that the materials were more effective when shared and explained during actual visits by the trainers, which we quickly adopted.
A fifth module, on community leadership and organizational development, has been included upon the request of PLM before the pilot ended. We will share this module and another module on Vitamin A rich foods, given Vitamin A deficiency in prevalent in poor communities, once available.
