We visit John and Jane's shamba and learn how to make silage themselves out of Napier grass. They plant bananas and sweet potatoes. They learn about the importance of using gutters to collect rainwater and learn the push-pull technology for napier grass and maize crop. Also, the cow stable gets an make over.

Shamba Shape Up is the third “edu-tainment” production created by Mediae, and the first of its kind in Kenya and now crossing the borders. Aimed at East Africa’s rapidly growing rural audience, the make over style TV show aims to give both farmer and audience the tools they need to improve productivity and income on their farms.
