The Photo Feature focuses on different forms of Nutrition Garden techniques adopted by community towards improving food and nutrition security and in building the resilience of the coastal communities in mitigating climate change.The community members shared that while setting up the nutrition garden, they also realized that such initiatives will not only help them to fight against the intake of harmful chemical but will also help their family consume nutrition rich food from their own homestead land. The locally relevant inexpensive initiative is undertaken by Swarnirvar in three villages of North 24 Parganas under the IGSSS SOUL (Sustainable Options for Uplifting Livelihood).
