SAT News Nr. 6, März 2016

Tanzania-FeldIm aktuellen Newsletter von SAT (Sustainable Agriculture Tanzania) berichten Alex und Janet über die jüngsten Wetterkapriolen und neue Agrar-Schulungen im Rahmen ihres Projekts „Garten der Solidarität“.

It is that time again: The El Nino phenomenon in the Pacific is making for either extreme drought or heavy rain falls. This weather condition also shows its effects in Tanzania and poses huge challenges to small scale farmers. At the very moment, although we should find ourselves in the middle of Masika (rainy season), not a single drop of water has fallen from the sky in the last week.

We at SAT aim to help affected small scale farmers by collaborating with them on how best to deal with climatic challenges through training in soil and water managment solutions. Therefore, we are happy to share with you our new Farmer Training Centre Schedule for 2016 that covers practical and helpful topics concerning organic farming methods. Also find stories about the extraordinary village Tulo, an extraordinary plant and a visual resume of SAT`s achievements of last year.
