 Local Vegetables  
There are vegetables that have ben associated with poor people     for a very long time from the colonial period. From recent research it has been found that local vegetables are of great value in daily foods, examples include, black night shade, cow peas, spider plant, Amaranthas etc. 

Before colonial time they used to be found growing wild. As the population increased, local vegetables started disappearing which led to the farming of local vegetables.

At S.E.P we value, treasure and cultivate local vegetables because of their importance & value.
