Chibwe School is situated 40 km from Kabwe, a town in the Central Province of Zambia. The school was established in 1979 and has a population of 1,534 pupils from grades 1- 9. The school is proposing to grow various traditional food crops. The garden’s aim is to ensure that families grow healthy and nutritious foods like soy beans, among others. The school garden will be spearheaded by Edwin Chola, the agriculture science teacher. The school has a field that is almost one acre in size which is used as a school garden and when this project starts it will use this same piece of land which is currently lying idle. Like other schools, they want to ensure that their pupils put into practice what they learn during the project implementation.
