About The Project
Homa Bay is located along the southern shore of Lake Victoria’s Winam Gulf. The county covers an area of 3,183.3 sq km with an estimated population of 963,794 people. The Luo and Abasuba people are the dominant communities in Homa Bay, making up at least 95% of the county’s population.
Homa Bay County is characterized by a rapidly growing population, high population density, falling food production, and low resilience to climate change. The combined effects of climate change and rapid population growth are increasing food insecurity, environmental degradation, and poverty levels in the county. The Forest Garden project will help to mitigate the effects of conventional farming practices including malnutrition and poor soils and harvests.
