Here is a little something we put together because today is blog action day, and world food day.
Blog action day is about food this year – and a large part of our Plant Stories Project is about food. We are finding that in Uganda – where food is not always cheap and easy to get the most important plants to people are those that feed them, or those that cure them from sickness.
This brief video tells part of the story of Fasila who lives right on the edge of the forest and almost finds life itself in the forest. After the end of the interview you will hear she went on to say something along the lines of without the forest she would die. We weren’t sure whether she meant she would die to protect the forest or whether she could not live without the products she gets from the forest. Unfortunately – because we are rookies at recording we missed that part when the batteries ran out on our dictaphone. oops.
