About the ProjectThis campaign started on August 07, 2013 This campaign finished on September 18, 2013
In the summer of 2013, 1A partnered with Sahman NGO to crowdfund for four greenhouses in the backyards of four homes in Berkaber (Armenian for “plentiful”), a border village.
We exceeded our funding goal and used the extra money to repair a fifth, pre-existing greenhouse. In 2014, the greenhouses had already produced their first harvest of tomatoes and cucumbers that were not only incorporated into the village’s meals, but were sold by the kilogram at the Ijevan market. This has created a source of income for four families and given an entire community access and incentive to farm in their backyards so that their village can be plentiful again!
