Gogo neBadza Mudhorobha

urban agriculture

Any success story to share? Here is one to share. Gogo in this photo told me she has been growing maize and other crops (mainly sweet potatoes) on this piece of land as long as she can remember. And she looks back at all these planting seasons with a smile on her face. “Chibage chandinorima chinotondisvitsa mwaka wezhizha unotevera muzukuru. Handitengi upfu”, she said smiling (translated, the harvest I get from this piece of land makes me able to feed myself and family all year round) What a story!!!! Have you got one to share?  

Kuminda Mirefu

That following year, Uncle Tobias retired. He knew quite well what to do next. With the lump sum he got from  the government, he bought a plot in Odzi. Kuminda mirefu. The land was fertile and quite suitable for growing maize, mbambaira nenzungu. He also bought a few beasts and a scotch cart.   Translations Kuminda Mirefu – New Plots Mbambaira – Sweet Potatoes Nzungu – Groundnuts
