Dr. Elizabeth Kimani-Murage is a Senior Research Scientist and Head, Maternal and Child Wellbeing Unit at the African Population and Health Research Center (APHRC). She is a public health nutrition specialist and a human rights defender, with a special focus on freedom from hunger and the right to adequate food.
We have joined Elizabeth in her garden, which is not just a simple kitchen garden, but a demonstration site to showcase vertical gardening and hydroponics. It is an edible landscape, which integrates fruit trees and berries, using sweet potato as a ground cover. Her garden mirrors the spirit of ubuntu, which she has also incorporated in her garden.
