This Man Stopped The Desert

2 year ago · Marta · 0 Comment

This man is called Yacouba Sawadogo and he is an innovative African farmer. Yacouba has been traveling across the deserts for the last 30 years trying to revive the old soil conservation and  re-forestation techniques. He has been using only a shovel as a tool. The man has a firm belief that everything can be changed for the better. And the amazing results he achieved speak for themselves.

The experiments of Yacouba were successful and the soil quality has increased. Along with millet and sorghum, the farmer also managed to start growing new trees, which in turn helped replenish groundwater levels. The soil, shade and organic materials under the trees help the moisture to hold so it can be absorbed by the soil.
