Food Plant Solutions Rotarian Action Group - now incorporating Learn Grow
Food Plant Solutions, established as a Rotarian Action Group to support the Learn◊ Grow project, was officially recognised by the RI board two years ago. To simplify the structure and reduce the confusion by having two entities they have now combined and will now operate under a single banner as Food Plant Solutions.
A project that helps people in developing countries learn about and grow the best local foods to match their nutritional needs.
Imagine, if you could, a world that was free of chronic malnutrition. Where children as young as five did not die of hunger or disease. That could be a reality now thanks to the efforts of Tasmanian agricultural scientist, Bruce French.
Bruce has devoted a lifetime of work to devising a simple and sustainable solution to global malnutrition through establishing the not-for-profit organisation, Food Plants International. Through his work he has documented the world’s most complete and comprehensive database of edible plants. These plants thrive in their homelands, provide nutrition and, most importantly, help the hungry feed themselves.
