We are still accepting your original photo submissions of innovative farming activities in sub-Saharan Africa for our upcoming publication State of the World 2011: Innovations that Nourish the Planet. We’re excited to feature more highlights in our new regular series based on all the submissions we’ve received so far, and we encourage you to keep them coming!

Today we’re featuring photos sent by Cathryn Kloetzli, a Peace Corps volunteer in Niger who worked to establish a community garden in Faria Beri and served as an agroforestry extension agent in the Baleyara region. Cathryn’s photos depict the community garden’s first year, when over 100 families were involved in its development, and women and young girls collecting water from a nearby well.

Please e-mail your submissions to We will include as many images as possible in the book, highlighting innovations across Africa that are helping to alleviate hunger and poverty in a sustainable way.

We will review all of your photo submissions, but ideally the resolution should be 300 dpi, so that means the file should be around 2175 pixels by 3000 pixels.
