Benin solar market gardens: photo gallery

This annotated photo gallery displays the success story of an ongoing solar market gardens project in which a women's farming group in Nothern Benin, through the adoption of solar-powered irrigation pumps, increased household income and nutritional intake in just one year, particularly during the long dry season. This story is intended to inspire investment in innovative ideas that link food security, energy security, and water security in the world's poorest areas. 

This photo gallery, and accompanying video gallery, is a product of a grant awarded by Stanford's Institute for Creativity and the Arts (SiCA) to FSE as part of a larger Arts and the Environment effort at Stanford.
