The women in Parirewa village Zimbabwe, aimed to create a source of income generation through sales of vegetables in the local market grown from their vegetable farm. This farm through support from Precious Gems have been able to construct a well for watering the farm. The women are part of a community association called Egagift Trust. The women started by securing the seeding from a local vegetable nursery where they were able to grow their seedling in the nurseries awaiting transplant to the main farm. The women did the transplanting themselves and made sure that the land was sprayed with herbicide. They cultivated various varieties of vegetables from Kale to tomatoes. When they harvested the vegetables, they were able to package them for local markets and supermarkets. This has been very helpful and the women hope to continue on a wider scale that will involve more local women.
