Growing and producing food are vital and constant activities in Kenya. The Rev. K.I.M. Foundation’s location in the west means there is fertile soil for growing fruits and vegetables. Greenhouses for lettuces, tomatoes and other insect-prone plants are beneficial, while open gardens are used for crops such as tubers and kale. Kenya has an equatorial climate which means the growing season is virtually year-round.
Mango, macadamia and avocado trees are yet other viable crops although they require considerable advanced planning. Other projects include bee farming and egg and poultry management. All of these projects require planning and construction to put them into use.
