Sustainable Agriculture

Home > Programs > Sustainable Agriculture

The Program was born out of the realization by the community members that Chikukwa land was slowly becoming a desert and the natural resource base which include soil, vegetation, water and animals was being lost. This implied the need for community voluntary initiative of which the neighbourhood initiatives, homestead designs, community nurseries, gardens, orchards and watershed rehabilitation efforts started as way or recovery to the damage done over the years.

The organisation’ s main objectives in Sustainable Agriculture is to improve food and seed production and other skills of Chikukwa farmers, facilitate a community driven grazing scheme, Utilize both wetland and dry lands sustainably and offer excellent farmer experimentation opportunities & farmer to farmer learning  through permaculture school.
