Kilimo Timilifu is located in the Village of Mchinga, in the Lindi Region of Tanzania along the Southern coast.
Mchinga village is ideally suited for our goal of empowering the south coastal regions of Tanzania with Conservation Agriculture and Appropriate Technology skills.
Our location, in a rain fall area of less than 1,000 mm per year with almost all rains coming between the months of March and May, poses a unique challenge to successful farming. We believe that implementing conservation agriculture techniques can overcome these challenges. Therefore interns who come to our farm to study for the one year program will be trained to succeed in an environment that is likely to be more challenging than any other place they may go, along the southern coastal region of Tanzania, when they leave here. This gives them a distinct farming advantage.
Furthermore, Mchinga village is located near the B2 highway running from Dar es Salaam all they way south to Mtwara town. This provides ample public transport options for our interns making our location easy to access by the Tanzanians we serve.
