Thirteen of the Rafiki youth volunteered to work on the farm for a day on March 2, 2013. A big thanks goes out to Peris Gakunga for motivating and coordinating the group. Here are some photos of the day’s work.

February 2011 Update
When we visited in February 2011, a brand new greenhouse had been erected just north of the clinic. While empty at the time, this holds great promise for Rafiki, since crops can be planted and controlled regarding moisture, temperature, and protected from pests that attack our crops. Tomatoes are a popular crop to grow in these conditions, but many more can be grown. When we toured the greenhouse in August it was clear that, after only eight weeks, the plants are thriving. While we are at the mercy of market prices for any vegetables we grow, it looks like this technology holds promise.
