Zimbabwe Smallholder Organic Farmers’ Forum (ZIMSOFF)

http://www.esaff.org/Zimbabwe/

ZIMSOFF farmers believe that traditional seeds are fundamental to their cultural survival. Thus, ZIMSOFF is supporting women, men, and youth farmers to sow and conserve local seeds, and to grow diverse, nutritious crops rooted in their traditional knowledge and spiritual values, while nurturing Mother Earth as a living soul. ZIMSOFF does so through farmer-to-farmer learning, field days and seed fairs, technical training, and community dialogues on culture and spirituality. ZIMSOFF goal is to instill a sense of respect and celebration of farming as a cultural way of life to which young farmers can aspire.
