This year, OSU Nourish is returning to Quito, in partnership with Triple Salto, to collaborate with local communities to strengthen food security systems through the construction of micro-greenhouses and compost wormeries.
Last year, Nourish International OSU successfully constructed two micro-greenhouses and one compost wormerie in Quito in partnership with Triple Salto. One micro-greenhouse constructed at a local school provides educational and agricultural opportunities for more than 300 students. This year, we are hoping to follow up on completed projects and reach out to additional communities to combat malnutrition and continue food security initiatives.
Triple Salto is a very experienced and skilled NGO that is deeply involved with the communities it supports. It aims to empower citizens to run their future with sustainable opportunities through socially and environmentally sensitive agricultural initiatives.
