Edward Mukiibi is the founder of Developing Innovations in School Cultivation (Project DISC), a partner of Slow Food International’s convivium in Kampala, Uganda. Project DISC is a program focused on working with rural Ugandan children to strengthen their capacity to autonomously produce healthy and safe food. The program takes a holistic approach, and goes beyond just growing crops to addressing nutrition as well. Students in the program also learn how to cook and process food. Mukiibi graduated from Makerere University with honors in Agricultural Land Use Management in 2009, where he also worked as a teaching assistant in the Soil Science Department. He now provides private agronomic services to small-scale producers in rural communities and builds market linkages with producers and communities in eastern Africa.
