ShambaJijini-Speakers 2021

Meet the pioneers in regenerative urban farming, business and urban livelihoods. Find inspirations in the stories and experiences of ambitious individuals, who are dedicated to produce healthy food and show pathways to regenerative food systems and a good, healthy live.

Growing better together

It is so good to know that the ShambaJijini-Speakers 2021, who are pioneers in regenerative farming and living, represent only a small share of all those individuals, groups, communities, organisations, companies etc. in Kenya, who dedicate their lives, their time and energy to planting the seeds of change and preparing the ground – for others to follow their pathways.

We find it important and powerful to know of each other and support each other, as we are sharing the same vision. Lets grow better together.

ShambaJijini-Summit – the vision

Urban and Peri-Urban agriculture has become more prominent in Kenya over the years. This is out of need, out of necessity to both supplement food sources for households and to bring an income. It is not rare to see small animals along the streets of Nairobi estates. Backyards, roadside verges, publicly owned vacant land have also become sites for urban agriculture.  Following the COVID-19 pandemic, there has been a boom in agriculture. While other sources of employment were disrupted, agriculture has become one of the most explored venues for supplementing household income. With a rising number of people in urban and peri-urban areas, it is an important time to ensure that this type of agriculture is done without harming the environment and our health: regeneratively.

Sharing the knowledge and the personal stories ans experiences, but also the challenges and lessons learnt of our speakers, ShambaJijini is aiming at inspiring, encouraging and empowering upcoming farmers to follow and apply regenerative agricultural principles, but also dive into a regenerative lifestyle in general. 

MEET THE SHAMBAJINI-TEAM

The ShambaJijini-Team is a growing collective of regenerative-urban-farming-enthusiasts. We have set our  minds and hearts on organizing the ShambaJijini-Summit on Regenerative Urban and Peri-Urban Agriculture.

ShambaJijini Partners

We are very happy to work with Kenyan and international partners who share our vision of a thriving local production of healthy, safe and affordable food in urban and peri-urban areas. Thanks a lot for your support!
