Kisima continues to play a pivotal role in the management and protection of the Kisima spring, which feeds the Ngare Nything - this is now supplying water to an ever increasing number of people, estimated to be close to 38,000 in Buuri District alone.

 

Floriculture

Kisima started flower production in 2001 with 2.3 ha of roses under plastic and lilies grown under shade. This has since expanded to 18 ha of roses in green houses, and outdoor production is now focused on 4 ha of Delphinium and Limonium.

Floriculture production is supported by a packhouse, cold storage, and transport.

We have embraced sustainable environmental practices through harvesting rain water from the greenhouses to reservoirs and recycling irrigation water through hydroponic system used in some of our greenhouses.
