Fostering Sustainable Farming with Innovative Organic Fertilizers

Organic Fields, based in Ruiru, Kiambu county, has undertaken an ambitious mission to address the pressing issue of waste management in Kenyan markets. The founder and CEO, Richard Mwangi, recognized that the piles of discarded waste not only create environmental problems but also contribute to global warming. His solution? Converting this waste from food markets into organic fertilizer, a sustainable approach that rejuvenates soil and mitigates carbon emissions. Richard describes this initiative as a testament to the untapped potential within waste management. This transformational process relies on collaboration with the local community, particularly young men and women who collect and aggregate the waste. At Organic Fields' composting site, the waste is converted into organic fertilizer, creating a product that benefits the soil and future generations. The project's significance has been elevated by the Kenya Climate Innovation Center (KCIC) through its Greenbiz Program, providing crucial support to Organic Fields since 2021. KCIC's contributions extend beyond financial aid, encompassing marketing assistance, knowledge-sharing with local farmers, and valuable business management training. This collaboration has fostered the growth of a distinct local brand, solidifying Organic Fields' presence in the market. Central to Organic Fields' impact are its bio-fertilizers, including Hygrow Organic Fertilizer, Bio Dama Bio Fertilizer, Champion Organic Foliar Fertilizer, and Organic Copper Power. These bio-fertilizers offer more than conventional alternatives, with the potential to significantly improve plant health and crop yields, resulting in a 10-25% increase in productivity. Richard envisions a future where agriculture nurtures both humanity and the planet, emphasizing sustainable practices over chemical and petroleum-based fertilizers. Organic Fields' journey is a testament to the potential that emerges when innovation, sustainability, and community empowerment intersect, creating a greener and more promising world. This initiative redefines waste, transforming it from a symbol of neglect to a source of potential for a brighter future. To learn more about Organic Fields, visit their website at

                  A better way to promote circularity in the local agriculture and food systems.
