We have successfully completed the negotiations with the landowner and now have secured clear title to the one acre of land for the community garden. Thanks again to the great on-the-ground work of our Nairobi based project manager Duncan.
The Ndandini Water Committee, headed by Kimali who is the principal at the Kyaithani secondary school, is now coordinating the colunteer labour of the village to clear the land in preparation for the next step in the project.
We are hoping that by mid-March the land will have been cleared of all the current brush (it has been unused for a while) so that Duncan will then be able to get the whole plot fenced to keep all grazing animals out of the area and away from the eventual drip-irrigation garden.
Keep watching for updates as this part of the project gets underway.
