The garden is located in Bukerere village, Bukerere parish, Goma sub county, Mukono district. It is on a 600 square meter plot of land. It was started in 2013 and is cultivated by the students.
They grow crops like bananas, paw paws, beans and maize. They utilize a seedbed and most seeds are purchased. They use the soil from the rubbish pits as compost in the garden. The garden is designed to control water and soil erosion. The water used in the garden is both well and rainwater. The garden is well-fenced in order to control unwanted access to it. Most of the harvest is eaten at school by the pupils.
The greatest challenges of the garden are the pests that are rampant and that destroy the crops, such as maize, and the pupils’ limited time to participate in garden activities.
