WEEK THREE: BACK IN THE THICKET OF IT


Brandishing their new cutlasses fashioned by our artisan Kamasorie blacksmiths the gentlemen return for this weeks’ farmer field school learning to clear and brush land to a standard sufficient for construction of IVS bunds, rice paddy plots and their adjacent Azolla and Bocashi fertilizer pits.

But first, project coordinator Amarbest walks the land cutting a trail with the farmers and explaining how Hope Sakuma farmers work with the landscape and leave forested areas to thrive so they can shelter and protect our wildlife and key pollinators for our farmers’ crops.

Over the coming weeks the team will also learn boli land preparation, incorporating the use of Azolla as rice fertilizer, as well as land preparation for an innovative nature based system to boost maize yield sustainably developed by Salvation Farming Solutions we’re very excited about and hoping to trial and which promises to improve nutrition, livelihoods and climate adaptation.

The gentlemen are really getting into clearing the thickets, scrub and cobwebs, ready to learn IVS constrtuction and azolla integration.

You can tell the boys are excited to also be clearing land for maize - they can see so much potential for learning Salvation Farming Solutions nature-based miracle maize method and teaching it to every village in Sanda Magbolontor and beyond. A simple system with more growing seasons that can more than double yield producing a tasty, nutritious maize that's both drought and pest-resistant. And because the maize is fortified with so many vitamins and minerals it could rapidly boost nutrition in some of the most deprived chiefdoms in Salone like Sanda Magbolontor.
