    Many residents living in towns and cities are turning to urban farming to fight poverty, enhance food security and improve environmental sustainability. Like many trying out the bag gardening is a young mother living in Thika town, located 45 km away from Nairobi city center. She is kind to share her secret with visitors who visit to witness the jewel she keeps in a landless estate backyard. Bag garden take only a square area and the bags can hold 80 – 100 crops. These lessons will be helpful as you will be able to take a bag home with you, curtesy of Kisima Safaris and have your own bag garden, offering you a chance to eat organic vegetable from your own backyard garden.

    Kibera Slums

A visit to Kibera slum will leave you shockingly inspired for you will be amazed by the gigantic industrious and incredibly busy market place that is… Kibera is a self-sufficient place where you will get everything that you want surprisingly in better quality than most parts of Nairobi city. It is a hub of talented hair dressers, interior designers, dressmakers, artists and fresh fruits and vegetable are sprouting from every corner.
    Women will amuse you with their extra- ordinary positivity and talented business minds, each of them believing that they will be successful. The below picture is an image of Kibera slums roofs, decorated by pictures of women who live there. The art was done in 2009 by a French photographer who visited Kibera and was inspired by the women there. JR photographed local women in Nairobi’s largest slum, printed them on a vinyl – covered tarpaulins and attached them to the roofs of the shacks in the slum as a part of ‘Women are Heroes project’
