December 2018: Pursat ProvincE
Prum Orn and his wife care for their two grandchildren while their daughter lives and works in Phnom Penh. Prum used to work on a commercial farm that grew corn, cassava, and long bean. Prum says that while the farm had been successful, heavy use of chemical fertilizers and pesticides eventually made the soil infertile and unproductive.
Prum wanted to be a F2F victory garden trainee because he believes that growing a variety of vegetables can be good for both his family and the soil. He is enjoying learning many new ways to think about gardening, food, and soil.

Happy to report F2F's Victory Garden Campaign is off to a great start in the Pursat Province of Cambodia. In just 2 months time, gardens are growing, families are eating, and knowledge is being passed along.
October 2018: F2F REVISES & STRENGTHENS PROGRAMS IN CAMBODIA
F2F is thrilled to announce that we are bringing our Victory Garden Campaign to Cambodia!
On October 4, 2018, we conducted our very first day of workshops with permaculture expert, Cristiano Marinucci, from Cultures Permanentes.
We started off creating a garden -- no wasting time getting our hands and feet dirty -- and are excited to kick off the Campaign with 30 very enthusiastic trainees.
It's wonderful to be working with Cultures Permanentes once again, and with our new partner, Sustainable Cambodia. We look forward to a collaborative and productive partnership that aims to create 3,000 Victory Gardens over the next 2 years.
