There are 25 members in the group of which 6 are males. On the garden measuring 3 acres of land, they grow crops like simsim, ground nuts, cassava, beans and maize. They sometime use dry grass to manage fertility and keeping soil moisture (mulching). Animal manure is not so easy to access in the area however they use it as much as possible. Each member also has an individual garden. The group members meet on Fridays to discuss about their plans as a group, check on the savings plan, share seeds for planting. Some few seeds are bought from the community market. When the harvest in the community garden is ready, they work as a group to manage it and share accordingly. The rest is sold to the community to raise some small money to keep up other activities in the group. Pests and diseases, water and the dry spell are the biggest challenges to be faced in the garden.
