Integrated Health Kwagala Farm

A family owned farm

a little story about us

Kwagala farm, located on half an acre of land, is the brainchild of Prof. Diana Nambatya Nsubuga, a professor in public health and Dr. Fred Nsubuga,an accomplished medical doctor who began growing vegetables to save money on food in 2010. After receiving two cows as a wedding gift, they decided to use their dung to generate biogas for her home. The burgeoning urban farm soon attracted the attention of the neighbours, and in 2012 the couple started training women at a small demonstration centre.

The Farm has been instrumental in advocating for and nutrition and food security and demonstrated that urban farming can be crucial in combating malnutrition, especially for the neediest urban households. The Farm has empowered more than 10,000 women through training and demonstrations. Neighbours of the Farm have adopted urban farming techniques to improve their food and nutrition security.
