Conclusion and Recommendations

ByAcknowledgements

The results of this study indicate that food production in San Augusto is primarily a household activity and is limited to the cultivation of fruit trees and shade-tolerant crops such as herbs and chillies.11 There was a limited amount of community-based agricultural practices, most of which were informal. At a formal level, the Office of Women for the City of Managua, in collaboration with the United Nations Food and Agricultural Organization (FAO), was involved in several school-garden pilot projects to produce organic vegetables for school kitchens. Other school-garden projects were also being implemented by the Ministry of Education, Culture and Sports (El Ministerio de Educacio´n, Cultura y Deportes, MECD) and the Emergency Social Investment Fund (Fondo de Inversio´n Social de Emergencia, FISE).
