The Kaswanga farm is a collective farming project that was started in 2010 in the village of Kaswanga on Rusinga Island in western Kenya. The farm is approximately seven acres, which operates on a long-term lease, with four acres already fenced and irrigated. We also recently raised funds to purchase an additional 7 acres of lake front land and a fish cage which allows us to farm tilapia directly in Lake Victoria. This fish farm is more profitable than the fish pond we built on the farm several years ago, requires less attention, and its funds are being re-invested in the farm to cover basic expenses and expand the project when monies allow. Our current plans for the farm include the following: 1) fencing another section of the farmland to allow more families to grow food 2) building a greenhouse and much-needed outbuildings 3) setting aside emergency funds for replacing irrigation pipes, generator and pump as needed 4) raising enough fish to distribute some to the farm families for food. At present, The Kaswanga Community Farm enables 80 families to grow food year-round and we are very close to being self-sustaining.
