Pollinators Of Kenya
Pollinators play a vital role in our ecosystem. Pollinators of Kenya (POK) is an advocacy arm of Gardenology that seeks to educate citizens on the role they can play in the protection of pollinators.
Elatia Organic Farm
Elatia is a family-owned certified organic urban farm which grows Organic vegetables on order.
Gardenology is a brand owned by Alice Migwi Farms Limited, a family-owned Kenyan business which was incorporated in 2013.
We started with small scale farming in Kiambu County from where we sold our produce to high end restaurants within Nairobi. As we increased our customer base, we expanded our land size and engaged contract farmers.
One fine Friday morning in the year 2015, an employee decided to open a packet of pesticide with his teeth and he immediately started bleeding from all his orifices.
It took him 3 months to recover and it was at that point that we committed ourselves to converting to organic farming. This transition process lasted 2 years and we managed to get Organic Certification from Encert.
In order to get closer to our customers, we set up a distribution point in Westlands, Nairobi. We often had surplus produce and so we set up a small restaurant (kibandaski). And a farm shop from where we sold plants and value added products.
We then established there was a tremendous need for Urban and Small Space Gardening products and solutions and it is against this niche that we made the decision to focus on urban dwellers.
