Foundations for Farming January 2024 Update

By Andrew Jackson | Operations Manager

As the year drew to a close so did the furious work of getting ‘Pfumvudza’ plots ready for the rains. A single Pfumvudza plot is capable of feeding a family of 6 for a year with either maize or sugar bean and with 8 plots per school they represent a huge boost to their ability to consistently feed students. 

Sadly the rains were late impacting planting for millions of subsistence farmers across the continent. But late is better than never and with so much work done we must now wait for the seeds to germinate and grow. With the addition of skills developed (including mulching, composting, weeding, fertiliser development and more) and practiced, we hope that this leads to a bumper crop and a record breaking harvest.

Best wishes and compliments of the new season to everyone who supports and takes an interest in our work. Here’s to a happier, healthier and more nourishing 2024.
