The garden is located in Tayari village, Kuresoi North sub-county, Nakuru county. The garden involves a group of 24 people (10 men and 14 women). They mostly deal with tree planting and environmental programs. They establish and manage seedbeds, after which the seedlings are sold to neighboring communities and the government institutions dealing with reforestation activities. After being introduced to Slow Food and 10000 gardens in Africa project, they decided to set aside a small portion of land (1/4 acre) for gardening activities. They rent the garden from one of the group members. The garden acts as a demonstration garden where the group members learn and replicate what they learn in their respective homes. They decided to focus on the following crops: potatoes, sweet potatoes, maize, kale, spinach, cabbages, black nightshade and spider weed. The garden also acts a seed multiplication center whereby seeds are multiplied and shared by the group members. They use manure for the fertilization of the soil, which will be supplemented by compost (they plan to establish a composting pit). The group members have also acquired knowledge on preparation of different natural concoctions to fight against pest and diseases. They share the produce and some are stored as seeds.
