Our partner in the field, G-BIACK, the Grow Biointensive Agriculture Center of Kenya, demonstrates, trains and promotes sustainable organic farming methods among small-scale farm holders in Central, Eastern, and Nairobi Provinces in Kenya. Eradicating poverty and improving the living standards of communities by promoting sustainable livelihoods is the center’s aim. The center sits on one acre of land in Thika, Kenya. It is designed as a model farm for small-scale farmers. It has over 160 double-dug beds, all planted with different types of organically grown crops. Soil fertility is continuously improved through the use of compost from the center’s gardens. The staff trains small-scale farmers on sustainable ways and methods of increased food production.
