Mount Kenya Organic Farm (MOOF)
The founder of MOOF, Peter Murage, spent 10 months in the UK gaining knowledge and experience in organic farming in 1997, including a five-month internship at Garden Organic where strong links were formed. Peter then returned to Kenya with the vision of a community-based organic centre to promote farming practices that would improve food security and livelihoods for farmers. MOOF was established in 1998 and seeks to promote organic farming, and act as a research, resource and training centre.
With frequently failing rains across Kenya leading to failed crops, livestock deaths and in some areas malnutrition and starvation, the contribution of MOOF is increasingly vital. Those adopting organic soil management practices are able to retain moisture in the soil and see greater success with their crops. MOOF is playing a crucial role in providing such essential information, advice and knowledge to vulnerable farmers seeking to grow their own food without expensive external inputs and without causing harm to their health or to the environment.
