NGOs To Expose Cape Mount Farmers To New Methods

By D.I gnatius Roberts, Grand Cape Mount County Correspondent

ROBERTSPORT, October 18,(LINA) - An international non-governmental organization Fauna and Flora International(FFI), in collaboration with REDD, has finalized plans to train Grand Cape Mount County farmers in a new farming methods.

The training will enable farmers to work the same land for up to six years.

FFI head Janet Kehkula and the head of REDD, Shadrick Kerwilliam,  made the statements at the weekend in Robertsport during a one-day Redd Interactive Outreach Forum organized by the New Liberia Media Initiative(NLMI) and sponsored by FFI.

They said the introduction of the new farming methods will change farmers from the traditional rotational method of shifting cultivation which continues to destroy the forest without replanting trees for the future.

Kerwilliam and Kehkula said the time has come for the forest management committees constituted by the Forestry Development Authority in the various towns and villages to work with REDD and FFI for the common good of the people.

They said felling trees without replanting could make storm blow houses away during the raining season.

Earlier, the Mayor of Robertsport City Corporation, James G. Kiazolu, thanked the organizations for selecting the county to be the pilot of the new method which, according to him, will stop the destruction of the forest.
