Successfully expanding our education program outside!

Tree Farm Project
Tree Farm Project

Since 2004, when we started our school gardens, Nyaka has worked to do its part to invest in the land surrounding Nyakagezi in southwestern Uganda. We take pride in our tree farm and many gardens located near and within our community.

The Nyaka Tree Project (started in 2019) is a key element of Nyaka’s commitment to sustainability. The project aims to preserve land, and teach forestry and land management skills to the local community. Additionally, the land is used for environmentally friendly practices, such as bee keeping and goat rearing.

We believe when we take care of the land, it will take care of us.

Many community members and grandmothers are taught and use sustainable farming practices to feed their families and bring in additional income. Ensuring the community farms in sustainable ways ensures the land will meet the needs of future generations.

Our school gardens and tree project has allowed us to successfully expand our education program to the community and within our schools. Students learn inside the classroom and outside in nature. Recently, the Farm Manager worked with students to plant vegetables and maize in the school garden. Nyaka Vocational School students go to the farm for agricultural practicals. In the photos below, students were learning about farm layout and were able to see some farm structures.
