Pearl of Africa Farm (POAF) is engaged in integrated agriculture, education and leisure farming practiced under sustainable environment approach.
The aim of the farm is to share best practice ideas with customers and others key stakeholders for the preservation of our environment.
POAF is sponsored by John Muhaise Bikalemesa supported by an innovative customer focused team. John therefore provides strategic and thought leadership direction to the farm.
John has therefore set up POAF to inspire other people and organizations to use the land and environment on a sustainable basis so that the Pearl of Africa can regain its lost glory.
John is lucky as he grew up in the rural set up that practiced peasant farming. This was the time when the land was still virgin and fertile with potential of supporting the growth of any seed that dropped on it.
There was no need to use fertilizers and chemicals to support the growth of foods crops. Mangoes, passions, guavas, pawpaws and other fruits were natural growing with little attention if any.
At the time different varieties of wildlife were roaming all over the land under the cover natural vegetation. But the beauty of the land and the environment under which John grew up is no more.
Most of the things he grew up seeing are no more. The land is increasingly becoming bare and barren as the vegetation cover reduces.
A rural homestead can hardly produce adequate food for family needs without the use of fertilizers and chemicals. The situation looks worrying if no corrective mechanism is implemented.
This farming approach provides the following benefits;
- Well maintained environment that reduces man made noise and pollution;
- Production of healthy foods;
- Provision of place for relaxation of the mind ;
- Provision of first hand and practical education and experience for children;
The management of the farm invites you to the farm to enjoy integrated farming under sustainable environment approach.
We can guarantee that by the time you leave the farm you will have relaxed your mind and at the same time you will be armed with practical knowledge to make positive contribution towards preservation of our environment.
