Tell the world your story about pulses

FAO recently launched the Pulses Stories blog to provide our readers with a forum to exchange stories, photos and multimedia about the cultural, economic and environmental impact of pulses on your lives. Whether you're a farmer, nutritionist, teacher, policymaker, home cook or just a pulses enthusiast – we want to hear and share your stories.

Submissions can take any approach to the topic, as long as pulses are involved. Here are a few suggestions:

  • Your experience growing or cooking pulses at home
  • Successful pulses production practices and lessons learned
  • How pulses are improving the overall nutrition or environment in your community
  • An artistic ode to pulses through drawings, videos or poetry

For more inspiration, check out our Soils Stories blog from the 2015 International Year of Soils.
