Tissue Culture Bananas; Alternative Agribusiness.


 Diffusion of knowledge among small scale farmers is one aspect leading to success in efforts to improve food security and household incomes. Communities in Ng’arua have started banana farming as an alternative agribusiness venture. The ALIN's Maarifa center has also upped the people's tendency and willingness to share whatever knowledge at their disposal.
 In the two minutes film, Mr. Charles Mureithi, explains to a woman how to plant and manage the tissue culture banana. Mureithi is the Chairman of a Local C.B.O, called ‘‘Laikipia Center for Knowledge and Information’’ (LACKIN) he also chairs the ALIN focal group which runs the Ngarua Maarifa center and is in the forefront in organizing and spearheading local community initiatives especially dealing with information sharing.
