 Two graduating architect students from the UK, Matt Parker and Rob Mawson are donating their time this summer to help design the new Kasiisi Project School farm. They bring not only architectural expertise but also experience with a similar collaborative building project last year in Central America.  
In order to learn more about farming Matt and Rob visited Wimpole Farm, an organic farm in the grounds of Wimpole Hall in Cambridgeshire where they were instructed on the best design of pig pens and how to fertilise the land using mobile chicken roosts.
The farm complex, funded by The Kasiisi Porridge Project, UK,  will combine growing food for the school lunch program with agricultural education outreach and community tourism. To help cover expenses these young men will be running a half marathon in Sheffield on May 8th. Anyone interested in sponsoring them can do so via the following Just Giving links below or visit the Kasiisi Project Paypal button at kasiisiproject.org referencing school farm.
