This Best Practice photostory was developed by the communities of the North Rupununi around the theme of flexibility. It is available in English, Dutch, Spanish and Portuguese.
Ahead of the International Day of Forests, on March 21st 2014, this photostory highlights the importance of sustainable forest-farming techniques that not only provide food for the community, but also help to maintain and replenish the environment.
Paulette Allicock of Surama Village shares her knowledge of farming techniques and the different uses of cassava crops. Paulette also gives us the ‘key ingredients’ for maintaining community flexibility through traditional farming methods.
