Other agricultural activities on the farm include hay farming, bananas and cabbage farming which is also still in its initial stage.

The Maji Mazuri Kiserian Schools Environmental Project: Maji Mazuri schools in Kiserian have partnered with Tour De Afrique to plant 1300 trees at the school, with the aim of conserving the environment and sensitizing the community on the importance of trees. The children at the schools, together with members of the Green heroes planted the trees and held talks on the importance of environmental conservation.

The children were excited about the project and gained better understanding of the roles the tree play in keeping the air clean, preventing erosion, providing shade and their role in the rain cycle.
