015 Distribution of the seeds of Nutritious Vegetables 

Ahmednagar: As a part of the Rural Health and Nutrition Project, seed packets of kitchen gardens were being distributed in all the 22 project villages. Each seed packet consisted of  10 different varieties of seeds of vegetables i.e. Brinjal, Tomato, Pumpkin, Green peas, Beetroot, Radish, Carrot, etc. The main objective of the  programme was to supply fresh fruits and vegetables high in nutritive value to the families in their homes. All together 812 women were given the packets of seeds of nutritious vegetables for kitchen gardens in the selected villages.  They were also guided about methods of plantation, usage and importance of nutritious vegetables daily as part of their diet. This whole initiative is being supported by Cummins India Foundation. People were  very appreciative of this initiative.
