Photo Album: Sack Gardening in the Slums

Mike graduated in 1996 from Daystar University. After graduating, he began a unique project, helping families in Nairobi slums with “sack gardening”.

Mike gave families large plastic sacks that are easily filled with soil and grow sukuma wiki, a highly nutritious green. Mike taught the families about gardening and how to care for their vegetables. Because the slums are crowded and have very limited green space, the sack gardens provide fresh vegetables to people with even the most limited resources.

Mike used his education and experiences from Daystar to help families in an unexpected way.



After graduating, Daystar alumni bring culturally-relevant solutions to their communities, helping solve the continent’s greatest problems.

Today's students are tomorrow's alumni. You can help sponsor a student who is struggling to get an education.
