Underneath the blistering African sun and seventy kilometers northeast of Senegal’s capital, Dakar, ten vegetable gardens with green leafy vegetables line a highway to the nearby Keur Madaro village. Super Vegetable Gardens aims to help small-scale farmers throughout Senegal and in tropical areas around the world by tackling food security, poverty and climate change. A collaborative agriculture project launched last June by international aid organization Pro-Natura and JTS Seeds has seen 150 gardens sprout throughout the country a year later. Each farmer is given a starter kit, containing soil conditioners, fertilizers, and an array of organic, non-genetically-modified seeds for fruits and vegetables including cabbage, tomatoes, carrots and melons.
