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.
