November 18, 2021: Food Beneath Their Feet: Africa's Indigenous Food Revival
A movement is afoot to recover traditional African food plants, preserve them, and disseminate the knowledge about how to grow and use them. Many have medicinal advantages as well as nutritional ones, and can be grown without costly inputs.
Plant biologist Anastacia Cheruiyot is a leader in this movement. She developed the Haller Foundation’s indigenous plant program and is a program officer for the African Women’s Agribusiness Network. Interview by Diana Wanyonyi.
