To complement this week’s story on soil fertility, our script of the week is a mini-drama featuring Tinga, a farmer who has just learned how to construct a compost ditch. Bila, his cousin who likes to joke around, comes to pay him a visit while he is digging the ditch with a few family members. The two farmers from the village of Godin, where soil fertility has become a real concern, start up a dialogue.
This script, by Adama Zongo, was one of the winners of our 2008 scriptwriting competition on farmers adapting to climate change.
