Mlango Farm Foundation
Welcome to the Mlango Farm Foundation, a beacon of hope and learning for Nairobi’s youth and community. Our mission: to enlighten and inspire through hands-on educational experiences in farming, nature, and environmental stewardship. Join us in nurturing a greener, healthier future, where every visit to our farm sparks a journey of discovery and sustainable living.
Karibu! Imagine a place where children can learn and engage in hands-on interaction with nature. This is Mlango Farm Foundation (MFF). We aim to provide children and youth (regardless of socio-economic background) the opportunity to get out of the city, experience nature, get some fresh air, get muddy and enjoy a fun day out at the farm.
Since 2014, we have opened our home and farm to visitors seeking a peaceful oasis from the hustle and bustle of Nairobi. Over the years, it has become more apparent that children residing in the urban environment rarely have the opportunity to experience farm life, sometimes never leaving the city at all. With this in mind, we established the Mlango Farm Foundation (MFF). Our mission is to create an opportunity to get away from urban life and to engage with flora and fauna. We want to help children and youth, not only to understand where their food comes from, but also to learn the importance of caring for the environment and the collective responsibility that comes in sharing it with others. Farms are a great reminder that as human beings, we are ALL part of nature.
What we do
We encourage practical and experiential learning through farm visits for all ages. MFF can help facilitate a variety of thematic programs, but also closely works with schools and teachers to develop programming that will best fit the program of the school and students needs. Themes include, but not limited to are:
* Guided tours of the farm with lessons on the different types of vegetables
* Crop cultivation – various methods of crop growth and harvesting
* Waste management – to learn about the importance of REJECT / REDUCE / REUSE / RECYCLE / ROT
* Livestock and animal care
* Bee keeping
We believe that for a sustainable future, we must collectively invest in the future and education of the communities where we operate in. We promote and encourage partnerships between local companies and schools, and between different schools.

We look forward to your visit!
