Mavuno Village Staff Community Garden

The Description

With these funds we will build a Mavuno Village Staff Community Garden.  Due to the world economic situation (post-COVID setting, war in Ukraine, etc.) there is a global hunger crisis as food prices are shooting up.  Tanzania is one of many countries affected by this.  In an effort to provide relief and help to their staff, Mavuno Village is planning to install a large, fenced-in community garden where the staff can share the space to grow food for their families in an environment that they don't have to rent.  This space will also provide protection from the many pests that make growing food difficult in our village (monkeys, porcupines, wild pigs, etc.).  It will also allow for much easier irrigation.

Back Up Plan

If we do not reach our goal we will purchase as much fencing as possible with the funds raised.

As of 8/19/22, the garden plot has been cleared and the lower fence has been started. The workers are unwinding the irrigation line, which will be laid in the trenches they have prepared.
