Africa's Flourishing Farms

A special essay finds grounds for optimism in 2014, in the rich terrain of the flower and vegetable farms around Mount Kenya. Susie Emmett finds a bumper crop of ingenuity, innovation and energy when she meets the entrepreneurs and agricultural scientists at work in local businesses ... and finds out what to do when a hippo interferes with your bathtub.
