EON Thriving Communities Program
EON’s Thriving Communities Program is an early intervention nutrition-based healthy lifestyle and disease prevention program. It is practical and holistic. EON works in partnership with communities and their schools to develop and grow large edible gardens to provide a secure cheap supply of healthy vegetables and fruit. We deliver nutrition, cooking and hygiene education, to the school children as part of their regular school timetable, and to adult community members through practical workshops. Sustainability is vital, so we also provide horticultural training and job opportunities. We walk alongside the school and community for five years to ensure sustainability.
