Feedback on Philippe's mission
Philippe visited the project led by Compétences Solidaires that was launched a little over a year ago and shares with us his impressions.
«When selecting projects, I had reservations about this project as its global reach gives it an elusive dimension. I had the opportunity to visit several gardens in the company of project leaders and I was convinced. The practical impact of the project appeared obvious: the oversight of local vegetables had led to a loss of competitiveness, know-how, biodiversity … Their reintroduction allows a cultural reappropriation and an environmental benefit, these plants being perfectly adapted to the soil. The visit ended with all of us sharing a dish composed of pounded yam with a sauce made with vegetables from the garden, a delight!»
