Our GlobalGiving donors helped us to collect the funds to erect a greenhouse for growing vegetables, year round. This project is a key part of ensuring that we can feed our school children with a healthy diet (regardless of weather conditions). Uganda is extremely fertile, but the extremes of heat or rain can create conditions that are not conducive for the growth of vegetables. A greenhouse will allow the farm teams to be more productive.
The work on the greenhouse has progressed rapidly. At the end of April, the structure was erected and the ground was prepped for the first planting. Our on-site agronomist worked with interns to train the parents on how to activate the soils for greenhouse farming. We will continue to report on progress and post pictures of the new plantings and harvest.
