NYABIKONI WOMEN’S VEGETABLE GROWING PROJECT. | To raise funds for purchase of a variety of seeds.
The project is located in Nyabikoni Ward,Central Division,Kabale Municipality,Kabale District in Uganda.
The Nyabikoni vegetable growing project is composed of women who came together to grow vegetables and other seed plants to feed their families with the intention to boost nutrition to their children and also make income from selling the harvested seeds. The project is also to serve as a way of promoting plant food eating against animal food. We also make from plants a stuff that serves as a pesticide and fungicide and don’t use the manufactured pesticides that are harmful to human beings and the environment. We also use farmyard manure and other forms of locally processed organic manure instead of the artificial manures. We are mainly young mothers with young children and growing babies who need a balanced diet.
So the purpose of this project is to raise funds to buy the variety of seeds and we distribute the seeds among ourselves and start growing.
On harvesting, some of the seeds will be used as food in our families while the some will be sold for income and some to serve as seeds again for the next growing season.
Thereafter each member is expected to sustain and expand on their gardens since they have reasonable land to use.
The gardens will be used as demonstration gardens too.

30 sachets French beans,at 20000/- U Shs @ 600,000/= 30 Tins of Green Pepper at 18000/- U Shs @ 540,000/= 30 Tins Carrots at 6000/- @ 180,000/= 20 Sachets Cauliflower 28000/- @ 560,000/= 25 Tins of Tomato Seeds 17000/- @ 425,000/= 20 Tins of Onion Seeds 10,000/- @ 200,000/= 30 Tins of spinach 5000/- @ 150,000/= 35 Tins of egg plant seeds 9000/- @ 315,000/= Totaling to 2,970,000/= Uganda Shillings Equivalent to US Dollars 825
