In July 2001, Farm Radio International presented a “script” meant to provide ideas and inspiration for programs on indigenous knowledge, such as:
-How local rituals support sustainable farming practices in your region;
-Local farmers finding solutions to pest and weed problems;
-Indigenous soil fertility practices;
- Innovative methods to collect water;
-Traditional taboos against environmentally destructive practices, such as cutting trees in sacred groves and elsewhere;
-How the disappearance of local language affects local culture.
To see more on these ideas, go to: “The importance of indigenous knowledge” (Package 60, Script 1, July 2001): http://farmradio.org/english/radio-scripts/60-1script_en.asp.
