TIKONDWE FREEDOM GARDENS – MALAWI
Background on the Project: Established in 1982 by Dr. Glyvyns and Christine Chinkhuntha, Tikondwe Freedom Gardens is an organic, sustainable farm that has successfully enhanced food security in rural Malawi. From a small plot, the farm has expanded to help lift the surrounding area out of poverty. It now employs over one hundred workers annually. As a demonstration project, Freedom Gardens has instructed local farmers and schoolchildren, as well as students and educators from the University of Malawi, Franklin College Switzerland, and Virginia Tech.
