Victoria Green Farms
Victoria Green Farms - Kenya
Victoria Green Farms’ innovation, “HarvestHaven,” addresses the pressing challenge of climate-induced water scarcity and its cascading effects on agriculture, ecosystems, and communities. With a focus on climate-resilient water management, the solution integrates multiple components to create a holistic and scalable approach. At its core, HarvestHaven leverages communal dams and groundwater sources to harvest and store seasonal water, ensuring a consistent supply for agricultural needs. This innovative water harvesting system not only safeguards against droughts and erratic rainfall patterns but also promotes sustainable farming practices. By storing water, the innovation mitigates the impact of climate change on crop yields, preserving food security for local communities. A key facet of the innovation is the utilization of bioconversion technology involving Black Soldier Fly Larvae (BSFL). This clean-tech approach converts organic waste into nutrient-rich frass, which acts as an organic fertilizer to nurture fruit forests. This contributes to carbon sequestration, combatting climate change, while also addressing waste management challenges.
