1. The Environmental Learning Research Centre and the Amanzi for Food Project.

People need fresh, healthy food. But growing fresh food needs a reliable source of water in a water scarce country. The Amanzi for Food project – funded by the Water Research Commission (WRC) and led and implemented by the Environmental Learning Research Centre at Rhodes – brings together farmers, extension services, local economic development, agricultural training institutions and agricultural NGOs. They share knowledge and skills around harvesting, storing, and using rainwater to improve food production and to make farming as sustainable as possible. Find out how it works in this first edition of ‘Engagement in Action’ and how it benefits every single person involved – from subsistence farmers to academics.
