We can all make a difference and construct the world we want to see and experience now and into the future. In part one, Taona Makunje Chigwenembe, the executive director of Creative Solutions for the Environment of Malawi shared with us the importance of honoring indigenous knowledge, practicing permaculture, and integrating agroforestry systems. The conversation continues about cover crops, compost, legumes, nitrogen-fixing trees, green manures, and ongoing resolute support of family, neighbors, and community in making a difference for soil health, water conservation, and educational leadership.

Taona also highlighted an educational initiative titled, "A Girl and a Bike," which provides scholarships, bicycles, and temporary housing to enable underprivileged girls in rural Malawi to have access to quality secondary school education. Taona and her team with Creative Solutions for the Environment believe that formal education is integral for protecting the environment and improving overall community life.
