Every Saturday over the course of five months eight women from the old city of Kabul were given weekly gardening training on two allotments. On each allotment four separate plots were planted, each containing a different type of vegetable. Learning from a local gardening expert, the women were taught how to plant, water, feed, weed and care of a range of different vegetables. All the women gained the knowledge required to set up their gardens in their own homes. The training was received extremely positively, and many women have expressed their gratitude for the opportunities the kitchen gardening project presented them, noting that is has given them a focus and source of pride beyond their daily routine within the house.
