A PCC Mission Moment Sunday January 7th: Who better to learn new farming methods from than a farmer in your community? Through a Presbyterian World Service & Development-supported farmer-to farmer agroecology project in Malawi, farmers selected for training are able to share their agricultural knowledge with other families in their village. Techniques like composting and intercropping are helping women and men transform plots of land into thriving sources of nourishment. Since learning to plant groundnuts and pigeon peas together on one plot of land, farmer Abel has seen his soil’s fertility improve and his yields double. He and his wife Mercy are incorporating the food they grow into new recipes. “Life has greatly changed for us,” shares Abel. PWS&D supports food security for smallholder farmers
