The one-acre garden is located in Mwanyangiri village, Wankoba parish, Nakisunga sub county, Mukono district. It was started in 2002 with varying degrees of participation over the years by the students, with an average of 473 students (230 boys and 243 girls) active in the garden.
They grow different kinds of crops, including bananas and maize. Animal manure from cows and pigs are primarily used for fertilizing the land. They dig trenches in the garden and mulch using dry grass. The water is fetched from wells by the students, and is sometimes collected from rainwater during the rainy season. The harvest is consumed by the children during meals. However, the perennials are mostly for the teachers because they own the plantation.
The garden is faced with the challenge of pests and diseases that negatively affect their crops, such as termites, nematodes, and the wilting of the vegetables. They also face the problem of intruders and thieves in the garden.
