DALAM – ‘A vegetable garden in front of the house of a JSS Family

The pesticide covered vegetables in the market is one of the major health issues an average Keralite is facing. Kerala, a consumer state, has forced to consume these vegetables coming from other states. According to a health survey conducted by Govt. of Kerala, the number of persons suffering from stomach ache to cancer has increased due to the use of ‘pesticide covered’ vegetables. JSS brought self sufficiency in vegetable cultivation among the rural people to overcome this crisis through a new project – Dalam- which means petal. Most members of JSS family have cultivated a vegetable farm in their house compound and also distributing vegetable plants within grow-bag. This project is a great success in terms of self- sufficiency and pesticide-free vegetables.
