Urban Farming in Kibera, Kenya: Land Tenure

Pin It

Last week Danielle met with a group of farmers in Kibera, one of the largest slums not just in Kenya but in all of Africa. With the help of Urban Harvest, these farmers are growing food to eat, and to sell, on a small plot of land that they don’t actually own. Access to land for farming can increase a family’s income in addition to improving their diet. And the benefits that the farmers Danielle met last week experience help illustrate just how much agriculture can improve a family’s quality of life–even in a very urban setting.
