Uganda has diverse climates, types of soil and farming techniques that farmers are applying. There are two periods of rain and two shorter dry seasons. Farmers have worked with these conditions for their entire lives and learned from generations before them how to best farm in these conditions. However, this has changed due to climate changes and farmers no longer follow the weather pattern to begin farming in their gardens. I visited two farmers, Namata Rosette, a 21 year old youth who has spent one year in farming and Malinzi John Baptist who has spent over 10 years in farming. They share some of the challenges they are facing as farmers in Uganda.
