Simon Traore from the African country Mali spoke about his farm.  He said the dry season is very long but he irrigated his farm to grow pineapples, mangos, papaya and other fruits.  He has started to use solar panels to create the electricity to power his well pumps.  He plants crops according to growth height.  The taller plants provide shade for the shorter plants in this very hot and dry climate.  He digs his wells himself to a depth of 30 feet.  In his four fish ponds he has tilapia fish.  Mali has farm land available for those willing to work hard and grow crops.  He sells plants for others to grow.  He took a wood chipper back to Mali last year to make compost for crops to feed his cows.
