PROJECT TARIRO is moving into intensive farming with a new greenhouse to propagate vegetable seedlings and an irrigation system for year around production.  David Mandizvidza, horticulturist and manager the 7 acre demonstration farm at Project Tariro at Old Mutare, is currently growing tomatoes and beans for immediate consumption.  Vegetable and crop production is part of a larger plan by the Tariro Board of Directors to move this program toward self- sustainability.

Project Tariro: Improving Health…Improving Lives

The 15 week training program for Project Tariro’s clients includes not only how to grow nutritious foods and herbs but also how to prepare the foods to be more tasty. Seeds as well as chickens and rabbits are provided to the graduates to take home and establish their own gardens and livestock for reproduction and improving their own diet.
