World Soil Day: Sustainability Break Video

Posted December 4th 2020

December 5 is World Soil Day. Take a sustainability-break and celebrate with us. Watch this 12 minute video to learn about soil health through small-scale conservation agriculture in Kenya. Over the past five years the Canadian Foodgrains Bank and MCIC member Mennonite Central Committee (MCC) have worked with their Kenyan partner, Utooni Development Organization, to help small-scale farmers in Makueni, Kenya maximize their farms’ potential.

Pour yourself a cup of Fairtrade coffee or tea and learn about conservation agriculture, a way of farming that emphasizes minimal soil disturbance, soil cover and crop rotations to make sure land is productive for years to come.
