Kalolwa Vegetable Garden

04 January 2012

Greystoke Camp in Mahale National Park is supporting a small business enterprise based at the Kalolwa Airstrip. The Tongwe Trust lend out land to Pai who grows vegetables for the camp. Greystoke buy Pai's vegetables at Arusha Market prices. Nomad Trust supports this initiative by providing a water pump, pipes, Foliar feed fertilizer, vegetable seeds and better farming practice training to Pai free of charge.

Since Greystoke re-opened in June for the new season the vegetable garden has made 817,460 Tsh in profit (at current exchange rates this amounts to over $500). This is hugely exciting as the garden struggled to make a profit for a number of years. Well done to Pai!
