Open Farm Day - creating love for farming
In May 2011, Kenya Horticulture Exporters invited school children and farmers in central Kenya to visit their Nyamindi River Demonstration Farm, which grows French beans for export. The aim of this Open Farm Day was to promote sustainable farming methods and encourage a love of farming in young people. Visitors were able to see technologies such as drip irrigation, and learn about topics such as soil health and biodiversity, seeing how good farming practices can be implemented. Pius Sawa met agronomists who were speaking to the visitors, and asked a schoolgirl and teacher about what they thought of the event.
