This is Robert, on his morning commute, to his gardens near Najjembe in Uganda’s Mabira Rainforest. He’s got his briefcase, his snack, and he’s chatting on his phone. Greatest job in the world.
Here’s what else you might see in the garden:
A re-purposed jerrycan, used to spread chicken shit.
Phil, spreading chicken shit.
Me, spreading chicken shit.
This freaking thing LIVING in the chicken shit.
Okay, enough about chicken shit. There’s other work to do:
Stephen digs furrows.
Stupidly straight, perfect furrows in the insanely rich, red soil.
and Kisha plants soya beans.
Come join us. After work we share jackfruit!
