It’s January which means only one thing for our sweet potato project – time for new vines to be distributed to new and existing farmers. To begin, 2,500 bundles of sweet potato vines have been delivered to Mpamba and distributed to around 250 farmers.
Each farmer receives 10 bundles and in each bundle there are 100 vines – that should produce a lot of sweet potatoes!
We’ll be following their stories throughout the year and we look forward to introducing some of the farmers to you. Now it’s time for the team to deliver thousands of vines to the next growing area.
