  • According to Anglican Development Services coordinator in Maua Peter Maina, the organisation trained farmers in Tigania West and provided them with seeds and organic fertiliser and then prepared 10 meter by 10 meter demonstration plots
  • The mulch helps in weed control, water retention, addition of vital minerals into the soil as well as regulating micro-organisms and soil warmth.
