King Charles visits tiny green space solving food security

The King picked spinach, kales and indigenous vegetables as he toured the farm. City Shamba manager Greg Kimani was given the honour of taking the King around and answering any questions he would have. “The King was very excited with the way we use organic manure at the farm,” Kimani told the Star after the tour. Kimani further said the King was amazed at how such a small piece of land in the middle of a densely populated area could produce significant yields. “He was amazed at how we were not doing anything out of the ordinary. What we do can be done by anyone, anywhere,” Kimanai said. City Shamba is an urban agricultural business that seeks to build city gardens appropriate for small spaces. City Shamba models urban centres to be part of the solution to hunger and malnutrition through training and enabling urban communities to adopt and practice urban agriculture. https://www.the-star.co.ke/news/2023-10-31-king-charles-iii-gets-a-glimpse-of-kenyas-urban-agriculture/

        I hope that King Charles's visit to City Shamba will inspire other leaders and organizations to support urban agriculture as a way to solve food security issues and build more sustainable and resilient communities.

                It is encouraging to see leaders like King Charles taking an interest in promoting food security and supporting sustainable agriculture. By highlighting the importance of growing indigenous vegetables and nutrient-rich greens like spinach and kales, he is not only promoting healthy eating habits but also supporting local farmers and their livelihoods. It is important for more leaders to prioritize food security initiatives, especially in a world where access to nutritious food is still a challenge for many.

                        The king arriving in the country and having to see the beautiful work being done in Kenyan green spaces is indeed very remarkable .Attaining food security is the ultimate goal of a young developing country.

                          @peter_kamau True. Food security is the utmost goal for developing countries.It is always sad to see people die of hunger during drought.
