Maureen Ochieng – Inuka Na Gunia Farming Project (Sack Gardening)

Date grant awarded: 07/05/2017

In a world where industrial agriculture poses a threat to our water and soil resources and the access to quality food, 22 year old Moureen Aum–a single mother–is using Sack Gardening to address this situation in Matungu sub county, Kenya.

Sack Gardening addresses the decrease of available irrigation land in Kenya and, more importantly, cuts down on water consumption. This project aims to train local youth on setting up small sustainable farms to feed community members, help them generate wealth and conserve Kenyan natural resources.
