Gardeners turning waste into fertilisers in the Gambia – BBC News

Aug 16, 2022

In the Gambia, like in most other parts of Africa, the cost of fertiliser is high.

The government is able to provide a small subsidy, but the costs can be prohibitive for small scale farmers.

It means that Gambians are coming up with innovative solutions, one such collective is based in Bakau, a town west of Gambia’s capital city of Banjul.

The Bakau women famers are turning organic waste into fertiliser, providing cheaper alternatives while cleaning the environment.
