The Communal Farm Cooperative (CFC)
Kar Geno owns and makes available to its members in need a big plot of fertile land. Depending on the season, we have maize, kale, tomatoes, onions and other native nutritious plants. We are able to yield a large crop from the farm, resulting in healthy meals for our members as well as a stable income, since the produce is sold in the nearby farmers market.
The CFC cooperates with Mabinju Primary School and Memba Secondary School. Through this partnership we supply kale for school children’s meals in return for a fee.
Assistance with any of these projects is always required and volunteers are welcomed. We are always looking for innovative ways to irrigate the fields due to a long drought season. Volunteers with experience or knowledge in irrigation and water management area are especially welcome.
