Farming Infographics in Africa
Thursday, August 4, 2011

Figured I'd combine the topics of the last two posts, infographics and Bill Gates.  

Ok, so Bill Gates isn't going to become a small farmer any time soon, but the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation sure is working on getting small farmers in Africa up and going with simple innovations. The answer to the world's problems is small farmers, and the infographic explains the vision for how better information, better seeds, better tools, and better storage all lead to an Africa with small farmers at the forefront.  With the famine crisis in Somalia getting worse, we all hope to see an updated infographic one day of how food provided by small farmers led to peace in the conflict torn country. That'll be one big innovation.

The infographic is, "a collaboration between GOOD and Kiss Me I'm Polish, in partnership with the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation." Read the original post by Good here
