posted in: Gouloumbou Farm

“Alone we go faster, together we go further”, African proverb (quote).

With the help of the farm’s trainees, preparation of the trays with the 9 varieties of seeds supplied by our seed partner, Agrosemens: tomatoes, aubergines, peppers, lettuce, cucumbers, courgettes, corn and spinach. Cucumber, courgette and maize seeds require larger cups which are not available locally. For this reason, we decided to replace them with cardboard cups. The Gouloumbou farm will soon be equipped with a press to make compact blocks of soil for sowing.
