Food is the essence of life. Without food we cannot exist. The greatest fallacy which exists is the fact that we as human beings are reliant on other people to provide us with food. Since time in existence we are blessed with natural resources which provide us with food in many different forms. Be it meat, fruit, fish or vegetables.
The tragedy however is that for thousands of years, most families produced their own food which they planted and harvested depending on the seasons. The people of Africa that roamed and inhabited this continent were specifically proficient and skilled in the planting and the raising of crops on a small scale. They provided for their own and created sustainable food sources that nourished their families.
Why did this all change?
- We have become reliant on others for our every day needs.
- We have lost the basic skills which were natural to us.
- We need to rekindle these skills and teach them to our youth & members of our communities.
- We need to produce crops that give us life and develop the business skills to become self sufficient.
This is the message we bring through the Institute for Rural & Community Development.
