Life garden

For over a decade, the people of Kalonga have had a challenge of food shortage to the extent that the majority of the  families simply wake up to look for a meal for the day. 

This can be attributed to poor farming methods and harsh climate that led to soil depletion. Food shortage doesn’t only lead to hunger but also sicknesses and prolongs the cycle of poverty .

According to  Thrive’s training Module for organic gardening, the situation in Kalonga can be changed by building the soil that makes healthy plants, grow food that also prevent diseases than depending on food that actually cause disease,  yet, without using expensive tractors or expensive irrigation systems or synthetic chemicals.

We have started our first  Life garden at our farm in Kalonga!

25 young people have taken the first training and we have so far 40 garden beds dug and planted with Carrots, Spinach, Kale, Cabbage, Onions, Tomatoes, Cauliflower, Eggplants, Capsicum, Beetroot, Green paper, Moringa, Lemon grass, Artemisia, Rosemary and sweet potatoes. We are targeting 600 garden beds by the end of September.
We believe that we shall have enough food for our children at the HOME OF HOPE in a short period of time and we will continue to train the people of “Kalonga” community on how to grow their own healthy food using best practices, low cost, great yields from a small space.
