HEIS Kitchen Garden Kit

Kitchen Garden HEIS kits

Kitchen garden is meant to meet nutritional requirements of the family as per their choice. A well-managed kitchen garden provides fresh vegetables. The distribution of kitchen garden drip irrigation kits are proposed in SIAPEP Project for 5,000 female headed households and 5,000 landless farmers. Whereas the 100 kitchen garden HEIS kits for demonstration purposes will be provided free of charge. The Specification of Kitchen Garden HEIS kits are as under:

  • A kitchen garden drip irrigation kit consists of drip irrigation equipment for a plot of 10m x 10m = 0.01 ha (0.025 acre) including a small water storage of 200 liter 53`with a conveyance pipe for the daily provision of water. Final specifications will be worked out together with Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO) who has agreed to take over sensitization and training of potential beneficiaries. FAO has already distributed kitchen garden irrigation kits in 14 out of 24 districts of Sindh Province. It will also ensure an adequate distribution of the demonstration drip kits as well as proper selection process of potential beneficiaries for the 10,000 kits to be distributed and installed.
  • The World Bank team together with the Government of Sindh and the implementing agency discussed and agreed with FAO to implement, given their involvement regarding activity of kitchen gardening in Sindh. The agreement is that the project will provide the 10,000 kitchen garden drip irrigation kits (hardware) while FAO with their own funding will be responsible for their installation, operation, and technical assistance (software) of the system to the beneficiaries.

Drip Kit

There are many types of pre made Drip kits are available in the market, which are also known as “disposal family nutrient kits”.  These all kits are made of LDPE (low density poly ethylene) or recycle material. The quality of these kits are not so durable and long life. The average life of these kits (250micron-500 micron) is not more than 1 year.

Alternately a Kitchen Garden kit is proposed in under detail Table, which is not only economical but also long life as compare to LDPE made kits. The average life of this kit more than 5 years.
