Tomatoes floods Garissa

garissa-scouts-076.JPGgarissa-scouts-052.JPGFarmers in garissa town loose thousands of shillings every yeaar due to over production of tomatoes due to poor marketing strategies. The seasonal ripening of tomatoes allows wastage  as their are no factories to process this perishable  fruit. One of the farmers who I taked to Mrs Hayi Hassan in the photo above  expressed concern and requested the governmnet and other change agentts to assist in marketing and probaly build regional factory to process this  vital fruit. Tomatoes are grown along the fllodplains of Tana river which is the only source of permanent water in the river.
