Grassroots Africa 

One of our members, Benny Dembitzer has launched Grassroots Africa. TAA members are invited to join in a voluntary capacity to provide a pool of advice and relevant practice to farmers in sub-Saharan Africa. Farmers ask questions of everyday relevance to their farming practices and they will be provided with practical suggestions on how to cope. The service is being delivered in English, through intermediaries and via the internet.

Grassroots has practitioners covering a wide range of topics (crops, water, organic fertilisers, seeds preservation etc). Also registered groups of intermediaries (mainly cooperatives and self-help help groups), who have a total membership base of over 120,000 farmers. If you or your friends are interested in helping, please let Grassroots know. They want to create a critical mass that will help provide knowledge and therefore power to the weakest of all, the marginal small-holder.
