How We Work – Hands On
Organic food Kenya believes in sustainable permaculture models that are integrated into a community’s culture and its traditional methods of agriculture. We work with widows, school children, disadvantaged youth and small rural farmers. We establish educational school kitchen gardens, where children will learn organic farming methods, sustainable water management, nutrition and microeconomics. In addition we integrate our educational format into a life skills curriculum, teaching the children and their families about hygiene, sanitation, and nutrition.
