A crash course in changing the world.

Abundance Agricultural Project in Bulawayo

This city is in Zimbabwe and has a large river called Khami which is underutilised for agricultural purposes. The City always has food deficit as compared to other cities in the country hence i have decided to design the Abundance Agricultural project, which will focus on the production of maize and other cereals for the wh*** year. The project will be situated in 1000hectares of land which has been unutilised for the past decades.

This project will involve extensive farming in which new and safe ways to produce crops will be implemented. Funds are already available for the mechanisation of this project. Water will be drawn from Khami river and the land will be irrigated every day. Natural fertiliser will be used as compared to scientific produced fertilisers to enhance soil fertility. The project will produce tons of corn that will feed the wh*** city in a year in just one season, in which the year has two farming seasons. Food security in the city will be enhanced as the farming complex will have grain silos to store the grain and reduce middle men which most of the times are involved in corrupt activities. Maize meal will be sold direct to the people through our designated points around the city to ensure that everyone has enough to eat and that there is enough for the future, this will be done to discourage hoarding by corrupt individuals.

Abundance Agricultural project will make sure that there is a surplus in food reserves and that the future is secure for everyone. There will be abundance of food, that even for the next 5 years the city's population will be safe from hunger and starvation. Nutritious crops will be grown and the food will be provided at affordable prices which everyone will be able to afford.

Hi Ayala, thanks for sharing. I had been looking into how to dry maize (mountain girl, cold temps here) in arid, hot climates (corn driers I know use wind-flow, screen or preforated platforms, ambient temperature of about 40 degrees F to retard mold...) for storage and human consumption. Also had theorized (see Imagine2 blog for really brief mention) on buck-wheat maize hybrid--not so tasty for fresh-cooked consumption, maybe (?), but might work better (combine gluten protein strands with corn) with thicker skins, higher protein contents--better food source, better insect, mold retardation?? Anyway--this Abundance Agricultural project sounds very interesting. I would love to learn more about market delivery, product preservation, and storage (and, therefore, post-production consumption) plans--maybe if we can help as we learn more about Thinkwell's plans, we can achieve something great together! Good sharing. Have a great conference. Michele

Here is information on Bulawayo from the RUAF site (which I found incredibly helpful in research information) - http://www.ruaf.org/node/503

I also blogged to help bring this project to the forefront.

public servants

The exchange works directly for state and public workers and servants. It gives them credit in exchange for the amount of public work they contribute to the community. The more constructive they are based off a base rate the more credit they recieve.

Where I will be in ten years.

Ten years from now I will be in a political job assisting with people in the midlands of South Carolina particularly the rural working class and farmers. As the class of people that feed the nation I find that it is imperative that we assist with making sure they produce as much food as possible. I would like to support local scientists as well that are leading in research on how to produce food more efficiently. I will also be participating in missions to foreign countries to help people with…See More

Included are new emergency routes on what will be an expanded highway to allow traffic to flow in the event of an emergency.See More
