Growing a single crop – upon which your entire family’s survival depends – is always a risky business. Imagine your crop being lost to drought or pests before you’ve sold it to pay for schooling, medicine or food for your family’s nutrition. After GardenAfrica’s training, armed with this shared knowledge, the world looks and feels like a very different place – healthy food all year round, and plenty of surplus to trade.
