Samoa's 'Bishop's Garden' Strengthens Families and Communities

SAUNIATU, Samoa — 

"There is a movement under way, beginning just beneath the surface, rooted, literally, in the rich soil of this island nation tucked away in the South Pacific," according to the Latter-day Saints' 'World Report' television program.

A 'Bishop's Garden,' an initiative of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints, is helping many Samoans learn how to grow more nutritious food, and more of it. It is located in Sauniatu on the Samoan island of Upolu.  

The World Report calls the Bishop's Garden a "community-building, family-strengthening, nutrition-based outreach."

Bishop's Garden Director, Sam Williams, says, "We are helping families, strengthening families, through food production and nutrition."
