Highlighting Entrepreneurial African Farmers

According to the U.N. Food and Agriculture Organization (FAO), there are more than 570 million farms in the world and global trade in agriculture totals more than US$1 trillion annually. There’s no question that farmers are feeding the world, but many lack the investment, resources, education, and attention they need.

Fortunately, from Uganda to Hong Kong, farmers are finding ways to farm in more environmentally, economically, and socially sustainable ways, improving the planet while providing food for their communities. They cultivate community gardens, educate citizens about farming, distribute fresh produce, and support fellow farmers. Hailing from the four corners of the world, these are 10 farmers you need to know.
