Going Organic


The Coming Together radio series is designed for broadcast by local and community radio stations or it may be heard and downloaded from the web. It has been produced by OLSET and COL for use anywhere that people want to take action to help fight poverty and improve their lives, and in particular sub-Saharan Africa and Asia. // The “Going Organic” programme is about the need for food security and using organic fertilisers. Soil scientist Saminu Ibrahim and agricultural economist Irene Tambula explain the value and use of organic materials to enrich soils, increase productivity and save money. We visit an organic farm project in Rwanda which is developing useful and surprising ideas for us all - whether we grow food on a farm or just outside the door. // PRODUCTION TEAM DETAILS Co-ordinator for OLSET : Farhana Chand ; Project manager at COL : Paul West and Krishna Alluri ; Project consultants : Kennedy Onyango, Saminu Ibrahim, James Onyango and Frances Cox (writer/producer) ; South Africa field recordings : Pule Phalatse ; Other recordings: Our thanks to Kazimierz Janowski, Ruth Evans, Warrill Grindrod and Namiz Musafer ; Presentation : Vineeta Dwevidi and Rupa Jha ; Music: " Coming Together" theme music composed and recorded by Lee Sparey at The Grooveyard
