Stewardship

I am in a room filled with the neighbors of my grandparents. As I sit here amongst the farmers of today, my heart is traveling back to the Saturdays of my childhood spent in Hamilton, MI on my grandparents’ farm. I can see the fields and barns speckled across the hills. I can almost smell the hay where our hidden forts were built and the barn swing rests. As I ride with my grandpa through Burnips, or Oakland, or Drenthe, or Vriesland – I have a sense that all the fields interlock in a tight patchwork of community. Yes, I know the people in this room, though I only met them a few hours ago.

Defeating the Armyworm in Zambia

The fall armyworm is an invasive alien pest that has blighted much of southern Africa’s maize crop this year. Zimbabwe, Zambia, and Malawi have all reported widespread outbreaks, and we have seen the trail of destruction throughout many of our program areas. The pest is not so much a worm as a caterpillar, and its common name derives from the way these invaders generally come in overwhelming numbers, giving the appearance of an army crawling and eating their way through a field.
