Foundations for Farming Spring 2020 Update

Maize harvest in progress
Maize harvest in progress

Ahead of implementing the vegetable crop areas and chicken layer project, coming out of Covid has meant we’ve been able to deliver a school support visit. Meeting with staff, the focus was on information and making up for some of the lost effort when crops were untended. Once the schools could reopen, the headmaster and the teachers at the school managed to weed some of the plots and harvested two cow-pea demonstration plots and two maize plots together with the pupils.

The trainers encouraged the school delegation to apply all the Conservation Agriculture principles the initial group of staff members had been taught, to achieve much more desirable results in their fields.

The school has enough land and a reliable source of water to venture into profitable farming activities.

The trainers advised the school delegates to practicing post-harvest weeding to reduce weed pressure the following season. The teachers were also advised again to gather as much mulch as they can to cover their plots.

It’s all stations go now and we’re excited for the next phase as we look to make this project more sustainable and get the community involved for that all important ripple effect.
