Creating food resilient gardens in a time of climate change

Seeds and other plants making a difference in PNG

At a recent in-service training workshop for extension officers in PNG, seeds of two grain legumes (and many other crop types) were given to the departing participants.

These two beans are Dolichos lablab and Lima bean (Phaseolus lunatus).
They provide food for people and livestock as well as nitrogen rich green manure in short term fallows as shown below.
