In Malawi people depend on maize as their only main staple rain fed crop, land is cleared, trees cut, grass burnt, house front and back yards swept, to give room for a crop not even native. Traditional knowledge of growing crops and keeping animals while still living in harmony with nature is lost, people are starving to death cause this crop from America is failing. The whole sustainable food system is compromised, so we need ways to reverse the situation. Luwayo Biswick is a Permaculture trainer, and explains in (Chichewa) on how we can still leave sustainably, produce all the food we need while benefiting all creatures of the earth.
