Cultivating Year-round Crops

Dhoker Jhara Village, India

This month we spent time teaching the villagers about saving money to invest in their crops. Since all the villagers were busy in their rice fields, only part of the committee met to discuss our next steps.

One of the next steps is to give the villagers training on goat and cow farming. We also discussed possible ways of saving and making money from cash crops. This year, we plan to do more crops rather than just waiting for the next season to cultivate the next crop, to avoid leaving empty fields. Instead, we could grow some of the crops that can be grown throughout the year.
