A moment of reflection: It’s a difficult time to be operating in conservation farming but also it’s of increasing importance. We face climate change - and crop yields are once again in question all over as seasonal rains are insufficient for millions of subsistence farmers.
We’d like to take this moment to thank our online donor community for supporting our work as we help schools learn about conservation farming and sustainable agriculture methods. We believe that educating young people in how low cost, low resource and of course low tech ways to manage their land is one of the best ways to ensure that families are fed – helping to tackle the significant issue of malnutrition in Zimbabwe today.
We also believe that stewardship of the land is the key to ensuring that the time will never come where farmers are unable to get a good yield from their crops or that local ecosystems fail.
As covid-19 rocks the world we don’t know what the funding environment will look like as we look to continue our work and support vulnerable people and at need communities to provide for themselves. All we can do is take a moment to say – thank you for your support!
