Childhood best friends Wachira Mwangi and Samuel Mbugua are teaching farmers a technique that may sound like the stuff of science fiction â€” growing crops without the use of soil and making a tidy sum out of it.
After a series of boring jobs and failed businesses the 26-year old University of Nairobi-trained biochemists tried to rear pigs early last year but the venture proved too expensive for the fresh graduates.
â€œWe just wanted to keep a few pigs and see how it goes,â€ says Wachira, â€œbut our biggest problem was the cost of feeding them. That was when my best friend Sam suggested that we grow our own fodder using a rare technology known as hydroponicsâ€.
