The 8th annual Gayaza High School farm camp has kicked-off today, August 13, with participation from over 40 schools across the country.

About 1,000 students and 200 teachers from 40 schools across the country have attended the annual event.

Among the registered schools include; Bweranyagi Girl’s School in Bushenyi, Iganga Senior Secondary School, St.Katherine Secondary School, Lira, Mary Hill High School, Mbarara, St.Agatha Secondary School, and Kabale among many others.

Activities like dairy and animal nutrition, poultry, piggery, Matt okra and biogas, open vegetable growing, forestry, and machinery attracted the attention of the participants on the first day which many described as a good start for the activities.

Annabella Ainembabazi, a senior student at Gayaza High School, said milking a cow is one of the best things she has experienced this year.

“I am super excited about this camp, I can’t wait to learn and experience many new things and teach my siblings,” she told New vision.

Gayaza High School is in partnership with other agri-based sponsors including; the AVSI foundation, Food, and Agricultural Organization, National Crops Resources Research Institute (NaCRRI), Norbrook, HEIFER International, and Pepsi among others.

The students will have a chance to live a life of an entrepreneurial farmer who wakes up at 5:30 am, milks the cows, feeds the chicken, and transplants vegetables from the greenhouse to the open gardens among others.
