Fruit trees irrigated by grey water in Uganda

Dear all,

I have posted some photos of a very successful attempt to irrigate fruit trees with grey waste water in Moroto, Uganda:

Enjoying the fruits of waste water by SuSanA Secretariat , on Flickr

The photos show the irrigation of a bed of pawpaw trees using the waste water from the kitchen sink in the house the I was renting in Moroto, Uganda. The technique has worked out very well - the pawpaw trees have given fruit in less than two years and have been growing throughout the dry seasons... And now you see the lady renting the house after me enjoying the fruits!

Hope you enjoy as well!

Dear Hanns:

Thanks for sharing. It is one more good news for grey-water believers like me. I also would like to share with you below my grey water dam which is already past its first year and is maintaing its good yield so far.

A nice photo! Is it cabbage (zukumawick)? It is certainly growing much better than without the irrigation!

Cheers, H-A
