Day 8: Community Education Garden

On Day 8 we went off for a tour at Katende Harambe rural-urban training centre in Namugongo. http://www.katendeagrotraining.com .

It is amazing how an individual sets up an educational centre that is so inspiring that we all left ready to replicate the practices we saw. From rabbit rearing to fish farming; from Doddo gardens to the Matooke garden; from mushroom growing to silk worms all was worth the visit. We met with two other groups from Makerere University touring and this said a lot about this institute. I think we have found the story that we must read in detail and change the face of our farm. I was in company of our farm manager and one of the teachers of agriculture and I hope and pray that we all catch the same vision. The 26 children we took had a nice time and when we returned to the camp we reviewed the day and agreed to start on a few practices we learnt tomorrow. Interestingly some were visiting Namugongo for the first time and they had chance to see the catholic shrines. In fact one of the children joked and said he thought they had visited America. The fact is that some children were able to travel furthest in their life time and they owe this chance to the garden plots they are working on and this is a good thought.
