A keyhole garden allows a family to grow enough food for three meals a day - even in the face of an extreme climate and poor soil.

Keyhole gardens recycle as they grow. The design of the circular raised bed - which looks like a keyhole from above - incorporates a central ‘basket’ where compostable waste is placed along with used water from the kitchen.

These gardens are especially useful in areas where good soil is scarce. They get fantastic results very quickly, often growing enough for a family to eat within just three months!

When you buy a gift from Send a Cow you're making a donation to help African farmers become self-reliant. Your gift is spent on our livestock and training programmes, across all the countries we work in.

I’ve seen Send a Cow’s work in action in Africa and know the difference these gifts make. Why don’t you and your family get a Send a Cow gift this Christmas and help change a life in Africa?

Did you know?

Keyhole Gardens help to extend the growing season, even in dry periods, so that food can be grown by families nearly all year round. We give this gift in Burundi, Ethiopia, Kenya, Lesotho, Rwanda and Uganda.
