MEDA implemented a pilot to extend the growing season for women farmers with the ultimate goal of contributing towards improved food security for women and their families in Northwestern Ghana. The project tested two water catchment, storage and irrigations systems: ferro-cement tanks and keyhole gardens. MEDA's evaluation demonstrated that keyhole gardens successfully extended the growing season and benefited women. The report concludes with recommendations for gender sensitive design and scale of the pilot.
