The activities carried out in the farm include mulching,weeding,seeding,transplanting,planting,irrigation,pruning ,making compost manure among others.

Volunteers will also learn,enjoy and experience new cultures by visiting cultural and historic sites such as The Abasuba Community Peace Museum,traditional rock art,ancient caves,swimming,hiking,bird watching,and boat expeditions around the island during their stay. From the onset, the project has been financially and socially supporting vulnerable orphans to access quality education, and widows living with HIV / AIDS in the Abasuba community. This has been partially achieved through the income generated by selling farm produce so as to improve the livelihood of the targeted group. It is on this regard that the farm urgently seeks organic gardening experience exchange to provide expertise and manpower from volunteers to realize its dream of social - economic empowerment of the vulnerable in the community. We also provide hospitable food and accommodation services in a serene environment to volunteers during farm stay.Volunteers are free to determine the preferred length of stay in the farm depending on their schedule.
