Postcard from Ethiopia: Man and nature in a cup of coffee

04 March 2015

Bale Mountains, south-east of Addis Ababa: biodiversity hotspot and surely one of the most extraordinary places on earth. I’ve been fortunate with Farm Africa to visit many wonderful landscapes but this one is something else...

The view from Kilosa

02 January 2015

It’s a Wednesday morning in November and it’s sizzling hot in Dar es Salaam, the Tanzanian city. November is the ‘hottest month’ in the city with temperatures peaking at 34 degrees Celsius. 

We are about to embark on a 290 km journey from Dar es Salaam to Kilosa to collect case studies for new projects we are developing there. It’s a five hour drive with a brief stop in Morogoro.

My first fortnight in the Farm Africa London hub

10 July 2014

It was a lovely bright day when I landed at Heathrow International Airport two weeks ago. Even though it is my second time here in the UK, the hugeness and busyness of Heathrow made me nervous. Thankfully Farm Africa’s London hub had arranged for a taxi driver to be at the gate with my name before I became too confused!
