計畫/ 養雞農耕計畫

我叫做 Mulongo Vitalis,今年23歲,住在 Khalwenge 村莊。我們一家都務農,我從小學就開始跟著父母耕種。 2017年開始,我開始學習有機農耕。在我的土地上,我種了蔬菜、香蕉和玉米,其中最主要的作物是龍葵和羽衣甘藍。我學會如何應用有機農法控制病蟲害。我的家庭也因此有新鮮蔬菜可吃,有販售蔬菜而來的收入可用。接下來,我計畫擴展農地,也遊說其他村裡的年輕人一起推廣有機農耕。

My name is Mulongo Vitalis. I am twenty-three years old and I live in Khalwenge area. I have been farming for many years; considering when I was born, I found my parents practicing farming. Since when I joined my Primary school all the way to High school, I have been farming until now. I joined organic farming in 2017. In my land, I have planted different crops including vegetables, bananas, and maize. However, in large extent, I have planted vegetables known as black nightshade, and collards. The difference between organic farming and other farming methods is that the former enables a farmer to control diseases, and harmful pests. Through the adoption of organic farming practices-foot paths, it is easier to control the diseases and pests. Through organic farming, I have benefited by getting vegetables for my family and money through the sale of vegetables. I plan to extent the land for organic farming and lobby with other youths to advance organic farming in the area.
