Presented By: Beth Doerr

Event: West Africa Anglophone Forum 2015 (2015-03-26)

There are perennial vegetables that are quite resilient and also highly nutritious. These vegetables can significantly improve diet, increase the body’s ability to capture the value of foods, and be incorporated into common foods. This presentation will discuss producing and using Chaya, Katuk, Amaranth and Okra and also talk about the advantages of incorporating perennial vegetables into garden areas.
