The G-BIACK center sits on one acre of land, the average size of a family farm in our region. It is designed as a model farm for small-scale farm holders. The center has over 160 double-dug beds, all planted with different types of food crops, organically grown. Soil fertility is continuously improved and maintained through the use of composted bio-matter from the center’s gardens. There are also chickens, rabbits, dairy goats and an apiary. G-BIACK center staff trains small-scale farmers on sustainable ways and methods of increased food production both at our site, and through outreach to communities.
