Asparagus soup tonight!
Asparagus soup tonight!

Many UMN staff at the Thapathali office bought bundles of organic asparagus today to support and encourage a partner in Dhading.  

Micro Enterprise Programme with UMN partner CIRDS (Chandra Jyoti Integrated Rural Development Society) in Dhading, has been involved in Organic Asparagus farming for the last two years.

Urmila Regmi, the project coordinator, is very encouraged with the response and sales of these asparagus in Dhading bazzar.  Next year she hopes the sales will be bigger and targets for at least 100 kilos of sales per day.  

When asked why organic? she simply replies, ‘free of chemicals – eat healthy, live healthy’.
