If money funds are available, building a greenhouse is very simple. But what's next? Does the school have a legal right to conduct commercial activities and to sell its products? How can we help the school obtain additional sources of funding for school feeding development? What is the proper way to care for seedlings? And, finally, what can be cooked from vegetables, except salads?
We studied all these issues in detail, as well as the regulatory and legal framework existing in Armenia. Based on the studied materials, we have prepared the following guidelines and documents:
The trainings were conducted by agronomists specializing in vegetable production under cover. During the trainings, school principals and greenhouse workers learned how to prepare the soil and plants for planting, how to apply fertilizers and create all necessary conditions for the production of vegetables, how to water the plants properly and how to create a favorable climate in the greenhouse to get a good harvest.
In the future, the modern technologies used in growing vegetables in greenhouses will be distributed among local farmers and rural residents and will help to qualitatively increase yields due to the transition to innovative practices.
