What's New For Refarmers in Kitgum?
The first Syntropic Agro-Forestry Course took place in Kitgum, Uganda from September 13th - 19th with our team on the ground participating and Refarmers Project Manager Patrick Paul Kidega facilitating this inaugural free course for the community.

Over 36 students attended, 11 of them were women! These students are school teachers and community organizers who will take these skills back and enhance the agricultural practices where they live and work.

The area they developed for the hands-on training measured 20m x 60m. The students planted 220 trees including orange, mango, guava and neem as well as all sorts of vegetables like kale, eggplants, green peppers and local varieties like otigo diii, obuga, akeyo, malakwang and otigo iwaka.

Many of the students hope to start small businesses, become educators or continue their careers as teachers with a deeper knowledge of the importance of environmental protection and treating the soil with care so that it may produce an abundance of food for many generations to come.
Lately, we've been recycling some of our Instagram stories to update you on Refarmers' monthly happenings. We hope you like the format!

We put a lot of love into the stories that only last 24hrs on Instagram so it's really nice and also time-saving to be able to re-use them in this way!
