Together, Farming for the Future

One way our church is empowering vulnerable families to overcome hunger and improve nutrition is by supporting the Malawi Farmer-to-Farmer Agroecology project through Presbyterian World Service & Development. The project—with funding from the Government of Canada and the Canadian Foodgrains Bank—has helped 6,000 farm families in Malawi transform their withered plots of land and improve their livelihoods and lives for the long-term. Learning from one another, farmers practice and apply sustainable methods that help protect crops from a changing environment. Annie Nguluve was amazed by the results of the program. Since learning about the advantages of intercropping, her small plot of land has sprung to life. “I’ve seen that I get more yields by adding other crops. It has increased my food production.”
