Mulch training
Mulch training

What have we done recently? The answer is - quite a lot! We’ve been delivering training to schools and communities on nutritional gardens with a particular focus on cash-crops. Using our climate smart methods this work supports livelihoods by producing chia, mucuna bean and sunflower. There is of course the added bonus that people have their own sustainable source of sunflower oil for the home.

We’ve also been working with our key school Inyaguwe to ensure that they are preparing the land for the next planting season. This is a great time of year to be making mulch which, using the by-products of the season just gone has be ability to put fresh nutrition back into the ground making it strong and fertile for the coming crops.

We’re also excited to be working on a new proposal for an enhanced methodology – if you’d like to find out more get in touch with our Operations Manager, Andrew Jackson at andrew@zimbabweeducaitonaltrust.org.uk Building on the way we’ve always done things we plan to make things more sustainable and wide reaching in the long-term.

Thanks as always to all our supporters.
