Biogas is free; That's why I like it
Meet small-scale Heifer farmers living in Luwero district, Uganda.
Meet Emma Nnalvngo and her husband, Edward Serunjogi, small-scale Heifer farmers living in Luwero district, Uganda. Their farm is a testament to what integrated farming can look like and what small holder farmers can do. When they moved here in 1990, they had little land and a few dairy cattle.
Today, they operate on a quarter acre of land where they have kitchen gardens and farm animals. It’s an integrated system which combines dairy cattle raising with biogas production, fish raising, chickens, goats, and rabbits – all on a single piece of land. They are producing enough food as a family not just for themselves but also to sell in the markets. It’s very exciting to see a family with a dream making it happen.
Emma and Edward acquired knowledge and training from Heifer and other partners and it speaks to why partners’ help is important. But it speaks mostly to what ordinary people can do.
