Deliwe Mvule: Farming Equals Education

Deliwe Mvule says the success of her farm is the reason her five children are getting an education.  She uses her raised planting beds to produce vegetables and the Farming God’s Way system with her maize crop.  She uses the manure from her cattle, goats, pigs, and chickens to add fertility to the soil.  She says HHI Agriculture Trainer Mbwenu Chirwa has taught her that the planting pits dug with Farming God’s Way are a way to “harvest rain water”.  Last year her one and a half acres yielded 70 bags of maize and she expects even a larger harvest this year.
