Food is a great necessity and a vital need to sustain life. At Kasese Humanist Primary School & Bizoha Campuses we involve ourselves in active farming. Am so thankful to nature for sustaining the crops, i thank River Muhokya that aids us with water & thank Mount Rwenzori to favor glacier formation from which the river originates and thank the forces of gravity that aids water to roll down the hills to the farmland.Long Live, Bizoha Farmland.
The farmland is giving us some good yields, right now we have planted big sweet potatoes, added yams to our crop list, planting tomatoes, cassava, maize, cabbages and egg plants.
As usual, the banana plantations is giving us bananas, we have 4 types of bananas on the farm namely Bogoya, Ndizi - yellow - sweet bananas and the common green bananas (Matooke) and the Bisubi variant for making juice & Tonto (brewed alcoholic drink).
We have some 6 mango trees trees ( 2 variants)
We have an artificial water pond which collects the water we use during irrigation, this water is again reused back to water the fields.
The farmland provides food to feed the schools Bizoha Muhokya, Kahendero and Rukoki and my family.
Some workers on the farm also have small portions assigned to them as a way to motivate them, some staffs at the schools interested in farming are also given consideration to farm on this land.
The area is spacious enough covering an area of 9 acres and lies in the irrigation zone of lower Rutooke in Muhokya Sub county. The farmland is a kilometer away from the Bizoha Campus.
