“Green Providence”

Wishing to reach the requirement of self-sustenance, the Community of the Formation House of Nairobi has initiated recently an extension of its small agricultural garden. Starting from a construction of a "Green House" in the month of November-December 2013. On December 1st, the first seedlings of Tomatoes, Onions and Cabbages were transplanted. That same day, was planted the cucumbers seeds that a week later will germinate and will grow at an unparalleled speed. On the day of January 29, 2014, our cucumbers are more than ready to be eaten. Now is the time to fight for a consumer market supplement. The most important is that little by little, we may reduce our dependence on the Nairobian market which is becoming more than expansible for what concern vegetable and green. As a variety we try to diversify. Thus, in this small space we have the peppers (capsicum), leeks, onions, tomatoes, cabbages, carrots, green beans or French beans, and the common Kenyan greeneries, namely spinach and Zukuma Wiki. For us it is really a “Green Providence” having this beautiful diversity in vegetables.
