The theme aimed to create a community amongst the farmers and provide them with the tools they need to exceed in their businesses.
After the initial welcoming and registering of all of the guests, they proceeded to the tents for various talks, training and skills sessions, including a speech from the guest of honor, the Agriculture Executive of Morang’a County.
The event showcased 24 stands, 16 of which were run by experienced Kakuzi managers and 8 by skilled local farmers. The stands mainly included workshops on avocado husbandry, but also offered training on macadamia husbandry for the local farmers who are unable to grow avocados due to their soil ecology.
Although a smaller number of 65 farmers registered for the macadamia workshop, Kakuzi recognises the importance of economic empowerment and growth for all of its surrounding communities; it also runs various projects around Ithanga, Rubiru and Kakuzi Hills for this reason.
Numerous exhibitors including SACCOS, insurance companies, agrochemical companies and information technology companies also attended Avocado Farmers’ Field Day. They provided guests with important information and training including farm inputs and access to finances.
