Growing Solutions Kenya is a Dutch government sponsored program aiming to support small and medium sized vegetables growers in Kenya. On September 18th at the Navaisha Horticultural Fair Green Farming will organize the launching of the Growing Solutions Kenya program in close cooperation with the Royal Netherlands Embassy.
A consortium of 12 Dutch greenhouse technology providers has implemented the program. At three demo-units at Latia Resource Centre Growing Solutions will demonstrate innovative greenhouse production technology adapted to the local production conditions.
Small & medium sized vegetable growers will be trained and informed on the advantages of the technology in terms of sustainability and cost effective production of vegetables in greenhouses. With the implementation of Growing Solutions the Dutch government intents to give a positive impulse to the Kenyan vegetable growing sector while creating business opportunities for Dutch technology suppliers.
