The high school enrolls 322 students, but the garden is managed by 68 students of which 37 are girls who actively work in the garden. The school has 8 acres of land however the garden sits on 2 acres where they grow crops like maize and egg plants. The seeds planted are saved from the previous harvest and some bought form shops. Organic manure from animals is the main source of fertilizer however it is just purchased from farms with animals. The water is got from swamps near the garden and boreholes. All activities are done by students which include planting, weeding, spraying, harvesting. When harvested the produce is dried and kept in the store. It is eaten by students and teachers on their meals which has increased on access to good diets by the students and teachers apart from the general school meals provided. There are several skills learnt by students since the agricultural lessons are taken in the school garden which increases their knowledge base. Pests are still a challenge; the dry spell as well.
