Extension services for Lake Victoria wetland farmers for improved horticultural production



Led By


Michael Wolff, University of California, Davis


This project aims to enhance the horticultural productivity of small farms among the Lake Victoria wetland villages. Eco Finder is utilizing the local radio and theatre groups to conduct seminars on health and nutrition and they are training 186 wetland farmers in sustainable organic farming practices. Eco Finder is also promoting the use of their already established eco‐sanitation toilets that generate night soil for soil fertility on small farms in the region. The enhanced productivity will increase household consumption and trade in the already existing markets, where demand for horticultural products frequently outstrips supply. Michael Wolff is employing his research skills to examine the benefits and food safety issues of night soil in the wetlands of Kenya.
