Wanja Muguongo a.k.a. Mboga Mama
"Food security means that we have to rethink our way of how we feed ourselves and our family."
Wanja runs a small organic farm in Makuyu, Muranga. The ethos of her business comes from a place of interrogating and challenging capitalistic ideas of unchecked growth and profit and exploiting the earth in unsustainable ways that hurt the earth.
Wanja and Gregory Kimani are talking about issues around food from rural and urban perspectives. Both are linking food security to food safety and talking about successes and challenges in food production and food distribution. Be prepared for a deep political discussion.
Her business under the name of Mboga Mama delivers food baskets to customers in and around Nairobi.

"To forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves."
