Green bunds in Tanzania!
Last October and November Tanzanian farmers dug and sowed more than 5,000 bunds. They prevent soil erosion and improve water availability for plants. And by buying the grass seeds from local farmers, the local economy is stimulated. By combining these two you get: fertile soil.
Underneath you see the process of digging the bund in the dry season to regreening during the rainy season.
