Sustainable agriculture is a new approach to growing food but yet uses knowledge from the past and combines it with new techniques.
Here in Kenya as in other hot countries the climate has become unreliable with rains becoming unpredictable and scarce in many regions. In other
regions too much rain comes at once causing flash flooding. Food security is more important now than it ever was with increasing population and
it is not good enough to grow food for our own family alone while a hungry world struggles to eat.
Sustainable agriculture needs a combination of new ideas to help increase crop yield without using chemicals. These include:
- drip irrigation
- poly tunnel greenhouses
- affordable machinery
