Food

Food is needed for the children and workers at Eagles Wings. Agriculture at a very high level of sustainability is therefore required. When old enough, the children help work the land and learn agricultural skills. EWCV keeps a few goats for meat.  Over eleven acres of land has been cultivated and planted with food crops such as maize, beans, cassava, potatoes, peanuts, and matooke.

There are two growing seasons and, therefore, two harvests, each year. Hard work and proper management are key factors in increasing yields.

“TO PLANT A GARDEN IS TO BELIEVE IN TOMORROW”.
