76 year old Chandar Prasad of Bau Road in Nausori has been farming since moving from Labasa to Naitalasese in Nausori back in 1993.
He started as a commercial farmer and upon his retirement in 2001 to his current home in Bau road he has been practicing Backyard Farming.
“Farming is my passion, when we moved here I continued with it,” he said.
“Although there was limitation in land space, I never gave up, I made use of the space around my compound planting assorted vegetables.”
“It has done us good in terms of health and income and it always delights me to wake up every morning to see the vegetables I have around my yard.”
