Techniques tested in Hayfield Garden
Fair trade jewellery profits benefit community projects: With leading edge advice, from AA International, on sustainable approaches to food security, we are testing their techniques in the new geo-dome at Hayfield Garden. Working with this local community garden project in Hay is enables Jump4Timbuktu to test the benefits of these approaches prior to their introduction to the Sahel communities, where achieving high yields from low quantities of water, makes a real difference to survival.
Plants fed by drip irrigation systems are healthier and produce better yields, whilst efficiently using small amounts of water. This is particularly important in the semi-arid Sahel areas.
