'Our biggest challenge was the cow dung'

Urban farming is used in many parts of the world to improve food security for families – people in cities using the small space they have in their back yard or garden or even roof to grow food for the table. One urban farm in the Ugandan capital Kampala is using the half acre around the family house so effectively, it is turning a healthy commercial profit.
