There are only two seasons in Uganda, dry and rainy, and after almost three months of very dry weather it is finally rainy season again!
Now that it is rainy season it means Kyongera Farm is getting ready for planting season!
Kyongera Farm was founded to help teach agricultural skills to the students at New Hope Vocational School as well as help provide some food for the children at Home Again Children’s Home. The farm is slowly but surely beginning to produce enough food to not only feed the students that work there, but also send fruits and vegetables to be used at Home Again.We are so very proud of all the hard work that goes into planting, growing, and harvesting everything that is produced at Kyongera Farm!
The soil is being prepared for the upcoming planting season.
New Hope students have been growing pineapples on their farm for 3 years now.
Matooke, which is type of banana, is a staple food in Uganda and is grown at Kyongera farm.
Eggplant is another common vegetable grown at Kyongera farm.
