This garden is located in the Lower Shebelle region, near the banks of the Asayle canal. The Asayle canal is a historical canal where many people lost their life and many wives became widows in the colonial era. The garden measures 17 jibaals (1 jibaal, a local measure, is a half-acre) and many different crops are grown. It is irrigated by the community, as it is near the banks of the canal; crops are rotated every season but the garden is always active. Many different crops are grown in this garden, such as sesame, soya beans, maize, potatoes, as well as onions, lettuce, tomatoes, green peppers, hot peppers, spinach and carrots. This is a large garden which many people depend on directly or indirectly. The beneficiaries of the garden are 103 and come from the two nearby villages: Majabto Yarey, that has 391 inhabitants, and Tawakal, which has a population of 511 people. The fertilizers used are both organic and inorganic. The mostly used ones include cow dung and crop residues, used as compost.
