Farming in Malawi: conservation agriculture and food security in a changing climate

Farming in many countries is much different than the industrial approach used in Canada. Malawian farmers are using an interesting combination of locally-developed methods including intercropping, manure and compost cultivation, mulching, and conservation agriculture, incorporating adaptations to climate change. Join us for photos and a talk based on the presenter's learning tour to Malawi, and learn about food security issues and an ecological method of conservation agriculture. Presenter Kurt Bisson is an agricultural scientist and advocate for the Canadian Foodgrains Bank, a Winnipeg-based NGO/charity involved in food security in developing countries.
