Eastern Kenya is home to the Huruma Farming Cooperative. This all-women group is incredibly proud of the indigenous and traditional vegetables and ingredients, growing them alongside the mangos they produce. Their love for indigenous products grown without chemicals has earned them the nickname “Asili,” which means indigenous.
Most of the women from this cooperative are from the Kamba tribe and speak Kikamba or Kiswahili. They often dress in green and yellow symbolizing both the shiny dark green leaves and the yellow flowers of the mango tree.
