Joyce – ‘Now my land is always green’

I cannot compare this land before and after, now the land is always green

Joyce’s small farm on the outskirts of Nairobi has been transformed by the introduction of a FlexExtend. What was previously bare is now green and productive. She now grows garlic, onions, pumpkins, and traditional vegetables which was not possible before.

Before the FlexExtend the water had to be lifted from the well using a winch and distributed to the plants using a watering can and single sprinkler. It was not viable to grow high-value crops with this method. Now drip lines have been installed which run directly from a raised tank filled by a FlexExtend coupled with solar water pumps.
