Kulika Uganda took part in the second Agricultural show organized by the office of the Kabaka of Buganda in Namayumba Town from 18th – 21st October 2018. All participants this year showcased their products under the theme “Lets’ talk less and work more”. The show was aimed at inspiring the local people to learn, adopt and practice various skills and technologies that can help them come out of poverty. It was an enriching experience as we got to meet other players in all value chains of production. We participated with four of our Key Farmer Trainers who displayed the best yields from their organic farms and value addition skills especially on ‘dodo seeds’. In the final remarks, the organizers said “They did not know that farmers can have good yield in an organic farm”. This event provided a platform for Kulika to promote Ecological Organic farming as well as increasing awareness.
Kulika Uganda took part in the 8th Annual Indigenous Food Fair organized by PELUM ( Participatory Ecological Land Use Management) on the 19th of October 2018 as last year’s defending national champions to exhibit indigenous and traditional foods, seeds, value added products, ecological farm production enhancement products from all regions of Uganda. All participants this year showcased their products under the theme “ Indigenous and traditional food and seed systems, preserving agricultural bio diversity, ending hunger.” Its always an insightful experience as we get to meet other players both local and international players in the movement to promote and defend ecological farming practices. This event also provides a plat how to advocate for policy reforms as well as pull resources to increase awareness.
