Farmer-led curriculum for East Africa well underway!
We had an absolutely astounding week in Ekwendeni, Malawi, working on developing an integrated curriculum that can be used by farmers to teach other farmers about agroecological techniques, nutrition, gender equality and climate change. Did I mention these messages will be tied together with a dramatic soap opera outline, and feature plenty of singing, dancing, and science? Faculty and students from several institutions (Cornell, Michigan State, Chancellor College, University of Manitoba, Action Aid Tanzania) joined with farmer scientists from the Soils, Food, and Healthy Communities project for curriculum development, farm visits, and even a little bit of soccer. Thanks again Atkinson Center for a Sustainable Future for the support!
