Majinya agriculture turns Chololo green!

Majinya means Chief in the ecovillage’s local Gogo language. The title was bestowed upon the former EU Ambassador Tim Clarke at the grand project launch event in October 2011 – making him Chief of Chololo. But the word Majinya has now taken on a new meaning. It is now used in the village to describe the new climate change adaptation techniques that the project is generating. People point to a field of crops and say ‘Majinya’ to indicate that the field was prepared and planted using the modern good agricultural practices that the project has been demonstrating to farmers. And it is making a big difference. Check out the latest pics below from a lush looking Chololo! See the results of improvements such as spacing, ridging, row planting, intercropping, and tree planting.
