    This week’s script has a nice connection to both of this week’s special contributors – Sawa Pius and Gladson Makowa. The script was produced by Gladson’s organization, the Story Workshop in Malawi, and, much like Sawa’s news story on Ugandan farmers and beekeepers, it deals with agroforestry. The script is a drama which features five villagers, both men and women, who discuss the value of trees as a source of income, as a method of fallowing and crop protection, and as an important part of the natural environment.
