From June 15 to 17, 65 coordinators from the English-speaking African countries involved in the project will meet in Nakuru, 150 kilometers from Nairobi.
The seminar will involve national coordinators and educators (agriculture experts and teachers) who are working directly with communities to provide technical assistance. Egypt, Ethiopia, Kenya, Malawi, Sierra Leone, Somalia, South Africa, Tanzania, Uganda will all be represented.
The aim of the meeting is to initiate an exchange of knowledge and discuss the practical aspects linked to the creation and management of a Slow Food garden.
The coordinators will recount their experiences and present the issues reported by the communities: how to prepare good compost in desert environments, how to manage water, how to ensure a school garden is successful.
The seminar will conclude with a visit to the Slow Food gardens at the Michinda and Marioshoni schools, close to the Mau Forest, the country's largest and home to the indigenous Ogiek people. Students and teachers will present their gardens and the activities organized so far.
This workshop is organized in collaboration with Compagnia di San Paolo, who supports all meetings of the Thousand Gardens in Africa project.
