Graduation and Planting Begins!

Last week, we had our first Graduation ceremony. Ten women completed the trainings offered by KCCUA and were eligible for graduation. At the ceremony, we gave each woman a certificate, a basic tool, and a piece of paper guaranteeing them the use of a plot for this growing season.

Everyone ready for the presentations!

After the ceremony, we got to work. The women removed more stones and started making holes for their transplants. Throughout the past week, we have planted 5 varieties of tomatoes, peppers, okra, greens, cabbage, potatoes, swiss chard, celery, celeriac, and eggplant.
