Tiyeni's presentations, featured during the Soil Regen Summit 2021, give a view of farming and food availability in the context of South East Africa and the appalling loss of topsoil and fertility resulting from poor farming techniques prevalent there.
Speaker: Colin Andrews, trained in Land Agency and a former Chartered Surveyor, became a trustee of The Tiyeni Fund in 2013 and Chair in 2018. He works closely with an all Malawi team of field trainers and agricultural experts in Malawi.
Tropical and sub-tropical farming has many challenges. In Malawi, one of the poorest countries on Earth, these are coming home to roost. However, Tiyeni's Deep Bed Farming is transforming livelihoods in all areas of the country. The simple, low-tech solutions are applicable widely in Africa and elsewhere. The talk will outline this method of farming, which substantially increases yields while reducing the cost of inputs.
Long term adoption of Deep Bed Farming transforms lives……. but widespread adoption will be life-changing for all Malawi’s people.
