This September marked Development in Gardening’s 7 Year Anniversary. What started as a simple Peace Corp project has flourished into an international organization that has enriched lives and land in 8 countries around the world.
This November DIG will revisit our West African roots as we start a new project in the capital city of Burkina Faso.
DIG will work with Burkina’s military hospital to provide an urban gardening program to promote sustainable food and nutrition practices for military families and civilians living with HIV in Ouagadougou. This project will not be unlike our founding project with the Hospital Fann in Dakar, Senegal, so what better person to lead the charge than DIG’s co-founder and inspiration, Steve Bolinger.
We can’t wait to share updates and progress from Burkina soon! Stay tuned.
