Weather and Growing Food in Malawi
Part of Weather Week
In Malawi, the primary crops include Maize and groundnuts (which are both very different from potatoes).
We are very fortunate to have our friend James, who lives in Malawi, explaining to us via video, about growing food and his life which includes farming in Malawi.
Do you recognise Maize or the groundnuts from the videos or these photographs?
Did you notice that James uses no machines to farm his crops - this is not the same as UK farmers? Why do you think that might be?
Going To School...
Sometimes you may have gone to school in the rain. However, have you ever had to take your shoes off to walk through the puddles on the way to school?
This is what it is like in Malawi to go to school often during rainy season.
