Meet Sylvers!

Farmingsolutions.org is an interesting website that discusses various sustainable farming techniques. There's an interesting article on Sylvers Katunta, a Zambian farmer who realized substantially increased yields using some of the techniques on the site, including:
  1. homemade compost;
  2. intercropping techniques; and,
  3. alternative plowing methods.
It's an easy read, has good photos, and is somewhat informative.

For more detailed descriptions of how to make your own compost, intercropping techniques, and alternative plowing methods, though, you might need to go elsewhere.
