I know of some NGOs dealing in organic farming activities but
I do not have their contact addresses except that of Kenya Institute
of Organic Farming (KIOF).
The following are some of the NGOs working on organic farming
- Plan International - Stations in Embu and Meru. They carry out
extension activities on organic farming alongside mainstream
extension service of the Ministry of Agriculture
_ Baraka Institute of organic farming - Located in Molo near
Nakuru town. It is an international institute concerned with
training of staff and farmers on organic farming methods.
- Manor house Institute of Agriculture - Located in Kitale. It
- is a training institute on organic farming technologies
The public extension service has a strong objective of feeding
the nation then export follows. There are very many self help groups
mainly women groups which are undertaking many agricultural projects
including organic farming. The ministry extension service includes
organic farming messages in its training curriculum. Hence, the
concern about alternative agricultural methods are well taken of in
collaboration with the NGOs.
