About me

Location Ssanje, Rakai, Uganda
Introduction Education and food go hand-in-hand. Without nutrition, children cannot grow their bodies or minds. With many children, a small budget, and land that doesn’t receive very much rain, we are challenged to grow the most nutritious food at the least cost to our budget and to our land. Our staff will receive training from an experienced permaculture practitioner from Australia, Rosemary Morrow. Together they will then design and begin the implementation of a plan to create a food-growing program that builds on local knowledge, maximizes local conditions, and minimizes the use of resources to grow the most nutritious mix of food for our children and staff. In addition, the local community and our partner secondary schools will receive training – exploding out into the wider community the ability to farm more sustainably.
