We can’t eat right if we don’t grow right. During this time of a global pandemic, it’s more important than ever to keep our immune systems healthy through good nutrition. Unfortunately, too many people in Malawi are so focused on getting one harvest of maize that they miss the fact that we can be having access to diversified and highly-nutritious foods throughout the year. All these pictures were taken on the same day (Aug. 11). The picture on the left is what a typical maize field looks like this time of the year and, in terms of food, is yielding NOTHING. The pictures on the right were taken at Never Ending Food in Chitedze, Malawi (about 50 meters from the neglected field) and show foods which are being produced without chemical fertilizers or pesticides, with minimal effort, in the middle of Malawi’s dry season, such as: bananas, oranges, white sapote, peppers, tree tomatoes, tangerines, coco yams (taro), lima beans, monkey oranges, rabbits, ducks, monkey bread, hibiscus, figs, plantain, oxalis, sweet potatoes, lemons, amaranth, air potatoes, chickens, and open-pollinated maize being saved for next-year’s planting. Solutions definitely do exist!
