A successful NGO leads to an ecological smallholders movement

I will like to talk about how ecological agricultural practices increase the food security of all the people specially the poor and the marginal
people who do not have any cultivabable land. they survive on uncultivated food sources. Women are particularly knowledgable in knowing about the
sources of food from uncultivated sources. But all these depends on whether there ecological agriculture in the village. Otherwise these food sources
may be destroyed.
