A new ‘keyhole garden’ in Yei has brought quick results

During the recent visit of the Send a Cow team with AID to look at opportunities for starting a project in the Yei area of South Sudan, Frazer and Mary were encouraged to build and try out a ‘keyhole garden’ on their little small area of land adjacent to their tukel (house).  Although initially sceptical, they were persuaded to give it a try and they have been overjoyed by the results they have achieved in just a few weeks.  Their crops of cabbage, okra, tomatoes and kale are doing well and starting to fruit and their neighbours are now lining up to copy their example.
