Projects Abroad enables volunteers to help efforts to redress global food imbalance
Date:2/18/2013

nable agriculture systems with local farmers.

Imogen Rimmer volunteered on conservation projects in South Africa, and learned some amazing facts about plants there: “One day my group was learning about the medicinal uses of trees: do you know that the vast majority of tree bark can help treat diarrhoea due to the chemical tannin; another interesting fact I learnt!”

The experience also had its funny moments, as Imogen shares: “We were walking through the bush when Andrew, one of the Projects Abroad staff members, was trying to find the seed of a tree to talk about it. One of the guys in my group picked up something and asked if that was the seed and Andrew replied 'No, that’s impala poo.' It was hilarious!”

Getting involved in a volunteer project is an immensely rewarding experience. What's more, volunteering in a sustainable agricultural project in Africa or elsewhere in the world can help local food producers to continue to do what they do best: feeding their communities and making a living, avoiding the pitfalls of the wasteful western culture.
