In 2015-16, the Rotary clubs of Wellington and Karori partnered with VSA and the Tindall Foundation to assist with the establishment of a commercial garden in Lalomalava Village on the island of Savaii. The project would provide employment for villagers and would build skills in a range of areas, from horticulture, sales and marketing, to office administration. The project would also encourage the villagers to learn from the experience of the garden in producing healthy crops to diversify the normal diet. Funding from the two clubs, plus a District Grant, provided initial working capital, while NZ Aid and the New Zealand High Commission provided funding for capital works and equipment.
