TOBA TEK SINGH - The kitchen gardening scheme remained greatly successful in the district and those who had sown vegetables by getting seed kits provided on subsidised rate by the Agriculture Department were using vegetables and were saving their money.

EDO Agriculture Ch Khalid Mahmood said this while he was presenting vegetables sown under kitchen gardening scheme here.

He said that kitchen gardening programme seeks to positively influence children’s food choices by engaging them in all aspects of growing; harvesting, preparing and sharing fresh, seasonal produce.  Kitchen gardening would ensure necessary support to poor women who most probably would happen to be primary beneficiary of the project, he said.
