    “Grown Under the Sun” is the theme of the first All Africa Horticultural Congress, to be held in Nairobi, Kenya, this August 31-September 3. The congress will feature research presentations on horticulture for improving livelihoods in Africa. Specifically, it will look at how horticulture can contribute to: food security, health, environment, poverty alleviation/wealth creation, and international trade.

    Note to broadcasters: If you cannot attend this event in person, you may wish to investigate whether any of the research presented would be of interest to your listeners. If so, you may be able to make arrangements to interview a presenter over the phone or through e-mail.
