Farming: not boring and ripe for change

BY LEAH ARMSTRONG
@ VOL 49 ON JUL 03, 2018

A trip to Ethiopia 17 years ago lit a spark in Leah and paved the way for an interesting career in agriculture. As a farmer, she is passionate about living a sustainable life: how food is produced, how it impacts the earth and how people benefit. In rural Africa, many farmers rely on their livestock as an informal banking system, but have no access to animal feed during times of drought. Using drought-hardy fodder trees and complementary agricultural practices she is making a tangible difference in the lives of small-scale farmers.
