Mary Nawiri is from Nangatuny boma, Katodori Payam, Kapoeta East County, Eastern Equatoria, South Sudan. She currently cultivates 0.7 feddan of land and grows field crops such as maize and vegetables like okra, kudra, pumpkin and cowpeas. According to Nawiri, the manner in which we grow in society depends on the environmental conditions of a particular area. She has a deep interest in farming because her ancestors didn’t practise agriculture. She wanted to cultivate enough field crops, but she did not possess her own land due to land management system in her area i.e., women don’t have control over land usage and the terrain of available land is poor for farming. She is glad for the introduction of kitchen gardening because it encourages cultivation even on a small scale.
