This edition’s Farmer story from Kenya highlights a reforestation project. Our Script of the week also focuses on a community reforestation project, this one in Ghana.
Disasters such as bush fires, floods, storms, and locust infestations destroy both plant and animal life. Farmers need to understand how to revive the land and ensure food security when disasters strike.
This script is about a group of farmers in Ghana’s Abinmma forest range. These farmers started to reforest land which had been destroyed by bush fires, clearing land for farming, tree felling, and overgrazing. The script is based on the real experience of a group known as the Asubimma Forestry Group.
You may wish to use the ideas and themes in this script to produce other programs, for example a radio drama or a discussion piece, to suit the needs and situation in your area.
