CONE GARDENS PROJECTS BY AFRICA CANCER FOUNDATION

ACF has continued to set up cone gardens for patients and monitoring the patients that we set up for in 2021.  Between March 7 2022 and March 16 2022, 17 vegetable cone gardens have been set up in Kisumu. 

On March 11 2022, we did a review by visiting patients’ homes in Kisumu County. The report is as follows:

The first home we visited was in Obambo but unfortunately the patient died on November 11 2021. The garden has been used well and a seed bed has been prepared to replace the planted vegetables. This is being done by the wife who said the garden has really helped them.

The 2nd patient is from Kayakwar. Set up was done in August 2021. The garden was neglected. We advised that the place is fenced off using an old mosquito net. There is a seed bed nearby and his wife has committed to take care of it because they have benefited from it a lot. 

The 3rd visit was in Nyahera. The set up was done in August 2021. Garden is well maintained and has very healthy vegetables and is fenced off well. The beetroot did not do well. 

Another patient in Nyahera, the garden was fenced very well and the vegetables are in good health.  However, the patient wasn’t at home.

In Kajulu, the garden was completely neglected as we could not get any explanation because we did not find him or his wife. Another patient also from the same area completely neglected their cone garden. We could not get the reason because we didn’t find him or his wife.

In Kaloleni, the gate was locked.

In Lumumba, the patient neglected the garden and she wasn’t at home. 

In Nyalenda, the patient’s garden was very vibrant and well fenced. Seedlings are already prepared for replanting. 

 

On 15th March 2022, one cone garden was installed in Nyakach. We also reviewed for other patients we set up for as follows:

A cone garden was installed in Buoye, Kisumu East in July 2021 but the patient said that she had it removed when the vegetables were finished. We reinstalled and asked her to replace her veggies regularly.
