Bucket drip kits, a one time cost of $12, allow women to grow vegetables during the dry season using drip irrigation. Drip irrigation, originally developed in Israel, targets precious water to where it needs to go, the roots of the plants. The bucket is available locally and the farmer (remember, she's likely a female) can raise enough for her family, with perhaps some extra to sell. Much less labor - it uses water efficiently. Less to lug, less time spent fetching it, more time gardening.

This simple wooden dibber would be easy to make, and would help a whole bunch when it's time to plant a patch of lettuce, spinach or other small edibles.

Vertical gardening - it maximizes your harvest, makes the most of limited space, doesn't require lots of bending, and keeps your veggies away from pests and rot. This easy-to-assemble kit lets you grow vertically vining plants either against a wall, or as a free-standing unit using your own posts. Takes up just four square feet of growing space but produces more vegetation than a 24 square foot plot! Perfect for tomatoes, pole beans, cucumbers, or any vining plants.
