"I see a bright future for Kenya in the direction of regenerative farming."
John was born in Mombasa and went from being a banker to a farmer and a chemist. His interest lies clearly in organic farming and in composting waste to implement circular aspects of farming. He writes blogs on issues related to pollution including water quality.
John and Silke Bollmohr give us information on food safety issues on vegetables and fruits. They talk about the impact of pesticides on our health and on the environment. As not all vegetables require the same amount of pesticides, Silke explains which vegetables we should grow ourselves and which ones we can buy from the supermarket.

"To forget how to dig the earth and tend the soil is to forget ourselves."
