Agriculture Program

Brief History

Agriculture is the main activity in the community around us. At the rush canteen grounds where we meet weekly, Rush members plants vegetables which they sell to earn income. These vegetables are also used during our weekly feeding programs as part of the menu served. Rush has been leasing land from the government since 2003. This land has been used for farming, whose produce has been used for feeding the Rush academy students and Rush members during the feeding program.

Twice a year, rush members will congregate and plant maize and beans on the farm; then harvest them at the end of the season. However, the county government breached the leasing agreement took back the farm in 2018. Since then, it has been a great challenge to feed the students at school and the rush community members. It is our prayer that God will provide a way for Rush to purchase a piece of land and use it for agricultural purposes. As part of the agricultural program, we have had various seminars to teach members about new and improved farming methods to maximise their produce.
