The smart farmer

The United Nations has designated 2014 as the International Year of Family Farming. This fits well with what Biovision does: our help for small-scale farmers is designed to encourage self-help so that the people are healthy, have enough healthy food and can live in an intact environment. As part of this, we are involved in information projects in both Africa and Switzerland.

In Switzerland, Biovision has joined forces with the publisher of "Globi"  to produce a children’s book. It tells how Globi converts a farm to organic farming and visits small-scale farmers in Africa to learn how organic farming works. “Globi, the smart farmer” is both entertaining and educational – for young and old!
