Sack gardening, Uganda


Sack gardens offer families a way to grow their own vegetables where space is limited or where flooding is frequent. Gardening not only provides a healthier diet, but also brings people closer to nature.

Your gift will provide one day of training, allowing 10 people to learn how to make and care for their sack gardens.


A Rocha Uganda is training people in slum communities to grow vegetables in sacks, tins and old car tyres where outdoor space is limited, or where flooding is frequent. The food not only provides for a healthier diet, it can also be sold to generate extra income for the family.

Gardening brings people closer to nature too – offering children the chance to have fun digging in the soil, looking after their plants and learning about pollinators.
