This is the story of Nezire Qyqalla, one of the beneficiaries of the gardening project funded by Suomen suurlähetystö Pristina – Embassy of Finland in Pristina.
Nezire is a mother of 4, all trying to get their basic education done. Because Nezire’s husband suffers from scoliosis, she chooses to stay at home and be by his side. She sees the gardening project to be very suitable for her current state, this way she takes care of her husband and also provides for her family’s needs while working in her own garden.
Nezire has been planting kale among other vegetables, and it was amazing hearing her explain to us the many benefits of kale, and ways to include it in our cooking. Kale is a new vegetable introduced not only to the women part of our gardening project, but our local customers also.
Since kale is a new product introduced to the market here in Kosovo, we will have another post on its benefits and ways we can include it more in our cooking.
