COVID Response > Urban Farming Project

The Frank Hilton Organization (FHO), is calling on families or caregivers of children with disabilities to participate in an Urban Farming Pilot Project in an effort to mitigate the effects of COVID-19. This project is supported by the Ministry of Agriculture and funded by the NZ Government.

In this initial pilot phase, up to twenty families or caregivers of children with disabilities within urban areas of the Central Division from low-income groups will be supported to engage in home gardening in order to supplement their child’s nutrition and diet. This may have future potential for income generation for these families.

The FHO will provide resources and training to set-up gardens for families that have sufficient space within compounds. Provisions for accessibility and alternative methods of farming will be considered where space is limited, requires reasonable access by wheelchair, or lacks soil fertility.

To express your interest in partaking in the project, please complete the attached application form and email to com.support@hilton.org.fj Or drop the form at the Frank Hilton Home, 139 Brown Street, Suva.

For any questions or queries you may contact the Frank Hilton Organization byphone on 2937513 or 3312210.
