Organized by: Molly Martin

THE STORY:

Help Pathfinder Acedemy and Lenana Girls High School boarding schools raise enough money to start their farm! This farm will consist of all the food needed to feed these children a balanced and nutritious meal everyday. Currently, the diet is calorie-based, where the children are mainly fed ugali (corn flour) and greens (typically kale). The main concern is the lack of micronutrients in this diet. The importance of this farm is that it will provide the necessary micronutrients for each child everyday and provide the fruit and dairy that their diets are currently lacking.
The farm has already planted vegetables, but is in need for funds for the other necessary items. After these initial funds are raised, the farm will be able to be sustained by the students and school staff. They will teach students how to do the eight essential processes for gardening: composting, double digging and raised beds (less weeds), companion planning (2 different crops in one bed for efficiency), open pollinated seeds (recycle/save seeds for replanting), carbon farming (growing crops for food and composting), calorie farming (ensure crops contain needed calories), and whole approach farming.

The goal of the farming project is to provide to schools with continuous nutrition. The high school girls will learn how to garden and farm in this area and learn important harvesting information during agriculture class. The girls will also learn the essential nutrients of each of the crops planted through nutrition courses. These girls will also have projects to go into communities and teach techniques for planting and harvesting crops. This farm will not only be beneficial to hundreds of kids, but it will also benefit the families and communities of these children.
