Our School and Community Organic Garden Program is incorporated in to a number of schools in Mukono, Uganda.
In collaboration with these schools, EACO has established many organic gardens that encourage students and teachers to learn modern farming methods. They are taught new skills that will enable them to farm the land in a productive and sustainable way. These skills are then passed onto their families, therefore transforming the previous Ugandan lifestyle of mere subsistence farming. We need volunteers and Donors to link up with us.
