Sustainable agriculture: Farmers share their experiences on ZNBC

From 29th November 2012 to 30th January 2013, Zambian small-scale farmers are sharing their experiences on sustainable agriculture on television and radio. The Zambia National Broadcasting Corporation (ZNBC) will be running a series of documentaries on the experiences of the farmers working with Green Living Movement (GLM) from the past 12 years of implementing sustainable farming methods.

Agriculture as a way of life for small-scale farmers in Zambia has gone through ups and downs. The use of synthetic fertilisers has not helped matters, if anything it has made the farmers’ productive capacity less and less sustainable by the year. Working with GLM has, however, given a glimmer of hope to the small-scale farmers in the rural areas in Luanshya and Serenje districts where the organisation is supporting the implementation of sustainable agricultural practices.

Tune in to the Chintobentobe programme on ZNBC every Sunday at 14:05 hours and Radio 1 every Thursday from 13:45 to 14:00 hours for the life-changing stories from the farmers!
