Bean in the field

Yesterday we had a field visit out to Machakos District in Kenya, following the bean value chain.  We saw research which is developing the next generation of bean varieties, through to farmers eking a living out of their bean fields, finishing with the highly motivated entrepreneurs who are making the markets work for the farmers.  We thought it would be better to show rather than tell, so enjoy our videos from the field including a cameo interview performance from our very own Andre Zandstra.  Don’t miss the one with Ruth Oniango – an inspirational lady giving a voice to women farmers in Africa.

Hope for the next generation of bean varieties
