On editing a Sustainable Agriculture Manual for Eastern Africa- for one successful NGO based in Kenya. Upon completion, i would recommend a must read for all interested in building the capacities of small scale farmers to be self reliant in food and income generating activities towards a better world. It encompasses SA approach to food security based on practical experiences of the NGO for over 16 years of practical work with small scale farmers. It clearly indicates what really works and what does not necessarily work with small scale farmers as far as sustainable agriculture principles and practices are concerned. Look out for the manual upon completion on the 30th of December, 2010......
