Field Day

On Monday, we arranged for a field day for all of the commercial farmers of Mazabuka/Chikankata to come and see the benefits from implementing a zero-till program like Foundations for Farming.  A local farmer (Wizz Bignell) opened up his land for farmers in the community to gather and have a hands-on question and answer with himself and Brian.

There was quite a turnout as you can see from some of the pictures.  While we were in the field, Wizz handled most of the questions, as they were more directed at what specifically he was doing in zero-till farming.  But later in the day, we returned to his home for Brian to give a presentation.

Brian's, as well as our conviction, is that we should honor and glorify God in all we do, including farming.  So, it was great to have someone who this farming community respects, share with them this conviction.  He shared from the heart about the need for Africans to not only be productive and make profit, but to also lookout for the needs of the poor and for the foundation of everything they do be Jesus Christ.
