The 500 residents of Berkaber, Armenia want to farm, but can't because their farmland, located on the other side of the village's reservoir, is under occupation. We want to build 4 greenhouses in the backyards of 4 homes in the village proper, creating not only a regular source of food but also a pathway to steady income for each family as produce can be sold and traded at market rates for 3 seasons out of the year. Each greenhouse will measure 100 square meters and can yield up to 50 kilograms of produce per day. This type of farming is new to Berkaber, so a team of agriculturists will visit the village regularly to train farmers on how to maintain and expand their greenhouses.
