What an exciting day it was for the members of the Michaka Upendo Womens Group and the Joy Womens Group who attended the Small Scale Farmers Field Day at Kisima Farms along with Guy, Mwenda, Salome and Gikundi (Gikundi is not in the photos because he was behind the camera).

They saw rabbits, potato equipment, a solar powered pump, potatoes, vegetable crops and various sizes of grow bags for vegetables.

A wonderful day, by all accounts!
