The African Association for Vertical Farming (AAVF) and KilimOrgano are announcing their close cooperation and active support for each other in the fields of vertical farming and sustainable urban food systems for Tanzania.
Both organizations advocate for a broad implementation of these innovative technologies to ensure a healthy, safe and nutritious food supply to the citizens of Tanzania. They will cooperate on all levels and especially support the implementation of Vertical Farming Trainings and E-Learning which the citizens of Tanzania and East Africa can profit from.
The Vertical Farming Training Center (VFTC), will be in Dar-es-salaam, Tanzania at the KilimOrgano Building.
Headquartered in Dar es salaam, Tanzania, KilimOrgano was founded by Ammar Mussaji, in 2015. In their state-of-the-art laboratory, he and his team take small pieces of plant tissues from mother plants, alter their composition medium, and then direct the pattern the tissue will take to produce many propagules. After multiplication, propagules are rooted before taken to greenhouses for acclimatization. Once these steps are taken, the whole plant will begin to grow and produce robust leaves and root system, ready to be sold to various agriculture stakeholders.
In Tanzania, KilimOrgano’s popularity has grown substantially as local farmers take advantage of the many benefits the company has to offer. Alongside Tanzanian farmers, their clientele has included International Institute of Tropical Agriculture, Tanzania Agriculture Research Institutes, Pyrethrum Company of Tanzania, Highland Estates Tanzania, Rufiji Estates, Sasumua Estates, Kikuletwa Farms, Tanzania Horticulture Association, Vericlone Tissue Technologies and many others.
