From Ridge to Reef to Burkina Faso
Past student of the Ridge to Reef Beneficial Farmer Training program, Daniel "Dinakar", has help spread seeds of compassion in promoting a high-nutrient food supply and viable crop of Moringa oleifera to Burnika Faso, west Africa. His project for the course included the design and building of a minimal-input dry garden, which he learned to develop in order to assist his non-profit's work. In it, he planted moringa, cassava, yams, and other crops suited for the situation. Nearly 4 years ago and with no care or maintenance other than an occasional weeding, Daniel's project here in Pleasant Vale still grows today.
You can help Daniel see that his work in Burkina Faso also lives on. As he ends his volunteer work period there, he is fundraising to see that it may continue into the future without him. Take a look at his project video, and please consider visiting his crowdsourcing fundraising page to help keep the project active.
