Team Mile Six impress us so much we've decided to stay! Developing this acre plus swamp for early cassava in three weeks, maturing in just three months and bringing Hope Sakuma to western rural district permenantly. So the team set to spending twenty days preparing and clearing the land before digging some fine high heaps, making sure the roots of the grasses are buried upturned improving soil condition. Diaspora volunteer Mo joins team Mile Six to celebrate the project and join the grand planting trying his hand at propogating the bundles of cassava sticks, Some truly expert chitting is on display as the sticks are cut in situ saving time and ensuring the correct length to propogate. By developing the swamp now we help provide food security for our interim care programmes during dry season and we can plant rice come rainy season introducing #Azolla to provide nitrogen for the rice and store more carbon than an acre of trees.
