In northern KwaZulu Natal, South Africa, a Chilli farming project has been undertaken by a group of mostly female farmers working on communal land, operating as a community farming project. It's an innovative self-help scheme in an area riddled with unemployment. I will tell the balance of the story in a future posting. The farmer in this image wears a white clay paste on her face which acts as a natural sunblock against the hot African sun.
