Heifer International’s Nepal-based communication officer Puja Singh sends us this field video, reminding us of the importance of something as simple as compost.
Heifer encourages agricultural practices that care for the earth. In Nepal, Heifer’s project participants have benefited greatly from the use of composted manure from animals that Heifer places with families. For project participants, improved crop yields often lead to increased standards of living since manure saves farmers money they would need to spend on chemical fertilizers and thus increases profits.
Indeed – manure is money.
