Farmers in Zimbabwe are extremely vulnerable to the dry, harsh conditions of drought making it difficult to produce crops. Conservation farming teaches men and women techniques that build on their skills with enhanced soil fertility, precision mulching, organic composting, crop rotations and water management.
The crops from conservation farming provide essential food for rural farming communities. Your gift will help farmers learn how to manage their crops and land effectively, even when rainfall is scarce.

“We got a big harvest with conservation farming, we were overwhelmed with joy. There was peace in our household when food was available each day, and into the future.”
- Judith, Conservation Farmer.
