Slow Food has created an ambitious project called A Thousand Gardens in Africa. The idea is to educate farmers and young people about sustainable farming practices, create community, and most importantly feed the people fresh produce from the gardens.
"Vegetable plots are farmed sustainably, using composting techniques, natural treatments for pests, rational water use, local plant varieties and by intercropping fruit trees, vegetables and medicinal herbs."
Large scale agricultural practices have not solved the hunger crisis, so the time has come for new ways at looking at the problem. By going back to traditional farming practices and putting the power to grow food in the hands of the people, Slow Food is already making a difference!
