Conservation Farming

Conservation Farming (CF) has continued to be implemented successfully during the current monitoring period with 2 cropping seasons being implemented during this monitoring period, the 1st running from November 2014 to April 2015 and the 2nd cropping season running from November 2015 to April 2016. One notable difference was the change of beneficiaries from 3 wards per district to including members of the community from every ward and marginally increasing the number of beneficiaries from 1,000 at project start to 1,065 current.

Nutritional Gardening

Community gardening has long since been recognized as a means to enhance food security and improve nutrition in general and is thus an additional food source for times in the year when field crops are not grown. So therefore gardening tends to be seasonal from a cultural perspective, whereby field crops of maize, sorghum, groundnuts etc are the focus during the rainy season and gardening during the winter and dry months.

Moringa Introduction to the Kariba REDD+ Project

The Kariba REDD+ Project spans 4 districts along the Zambezi valley. These are Binga, Nyaminyami, Hurungwe and Mbire. Since the Kariba REDD+ Project started in 2011, the local communities in these districts have been asking for assistance to finding alternative cash crops. During mid-2016 moringa oleifera was identified as having the potential to fulfill this cash crop need and with the increased global interest and demand, this quickly grew and thus the moringa project came to fruition.
