The distribution of home gardening seed packages has ceased.

The Ministry of Agriculture said this is to allow the Ministry to venture into another initiative as part of its response to COVID-19.

In a statement today the Ministry thanked all Fijians who have come forward and shown a keen interest in growing their food by being a part of the Home Gardening Initiative.

“There has been tremendous public interest and response to this program, indicating the shift in people’s focus towards agricultural related activities,” the statement said.

“The distribution of the home gardening seeds will resume once more at a later date.”
