Give to get
As competition for land increases, is it inevitable that some win, while others lose? Or is it possible to create win-win solutions for people and nature? In April 2010, Margaret reoriented her farm and implemented basic conservation measures to improve soil and water retention. Her yields shot up, while run-off into the Turasha River dropped.
Her neighbours have taken note, and are making the same changes on their land. With increased productivity, the same farms are supporting more people. Margaret, a farmer with virtually no safety net, took a chance on change. It’s time for others to be as brave.
