Walking through a forest of tomatoes


Targeting 100,000 tomato plants are a youthful determined to embrace the wholeness of their ancestral land.
Their thinking is very simple, if I can get just 5 tomatoes/plant and sell each at 1/= my home basics are sorted – even children going to boarding!
Challenged by fellow tribesman with cows doing 60ltrs/day from the “unproductive/dry” land as they kept being told as they grew up. They are now asking why others shouldn’t be visiting their “dry land” Makueni to learn productivity.

While everything else turns crisp brown they are determined to have green forests of crops on each of their age mates ancestral land. Meanwhile their younger siblings are having a field day learning to turn that produce to products they normally buy.
