In the last quarter we’ve been delighted to be back training participants of both Guzha Primary School and Dandara Primary School. Each four day training programme included our ‘Pfumvudza’ model’s potential to produce enough food for a family of six for an entire year. Other topics included; vegetable production, household remedies, composting, agroforestry as well as leadership and team building.

The participants were trained to establish demonstration plots in their school, personal fields and the surrounding communities. The teachers were encouraged to patiently teach their pupils thepracticality of the intervention, to help them to not just understand what conservation agriculture is and its importance, but for them to gain the necessary skills for them adopt it in their fields at home.

We’ve also been preparing the demonstration crop plots where the theory will be put in to practice and the school feeding programme will literally come to life.

We’ll show you the exciting results next time…

Thank you
