I run a large scale farm in one of the driest parts of Kenya. Through irrigation, I have been able to maintain production throughout the year and provide employment to tens of young people in the region. I use my farm as a model to teach the locals how to use sustainable farming methods to maintain their farms. The effects of climate change are upon us and it is only those who practice sustainable farming who will be able to produce food for consumption and for sale. 90% of farmers in Africa are smallholder farmers who practice rain-fed agriculture, but climate change has affected their ability to produce food for their own consumption and for sale. This has resulted in food scarcity on a regional level and high food prices. Most of Africa is now depending on donor aid to feed it’s population but with sustainable farming methods, we will be able to feed ourselves and produce more food for sale. MELMAX FARM FRESH is teaching the locals in rural Kenya sustainable farming methods.
