Update on Walipini
The underground greenhouse of Sama, also known as walipini, was constructed with the goal of producing vegetables all year round. Despite the changing season outside, the constant temperature of our walipini is allowing seeds to sprout and grow. See the photos of the plants that are currently growing in our greenhouse.
As these seedlings sprout and establish a means of year-round produce, they have paved a way of agricultural innovation for the entire Nubri Valley. We believe these techniques will help to usher in new opportunities for communities throughout the Himalayas.
