New Farmer Advocate Hired

Due to the explosive growth of sustainable conservation agriculture demonstration plots in the Lunsar area, we have hired John Bangura, a member of Ebenezer Baptist Fellowship, to help Shanty with oversight and farmer support. The demonstration plots have become so plentiful and busy that Shanty can no longer manage them all alone. John is a civil engineer who worked for the mining company prior to the Ebola outbreak. When the mines closed, he enrolled in Foday’s seminary school and now serves Ebenezer as director of agricultural outreach. He attended all of our trainings in March and has been a great source of support and enthusiasm since then.
