Nourishing the Planet in the Ethiopian News

Check out this Nourishing the Planet op-ed featured yesterday in one of Ethiopia’s most widely respected papers, the Addis Fortune.  The op-ed discusses the importance of sharing traditional knowledge, practices, and innovations between farmers to help protect the environment, raise incomes, and improve food security. In Ethiopia we had the opportunity to learn about the work of the Institute for Sustainable Development, founded by Nourishing the Planet Advisory Group members Sue Edwards and her husband, Tewolde Berhan Gebre Egziabher, who are working to help farmers share ideas, increase crop yields, and  manage their land with more sustainable methods.

To read more about innovative programs that are bringing farmers together see: Spreading the Wealth of Innovations, Innovation of the Week: Farmers Learning From Farmers, and Persistently Innovative: One farmer teaches by example.
