Transformation of our food systems

In the latest book, Globi takes on the running of a farm on behalf of an elderly farmer and converts it to organic. When the swallows in the barn announce that there are organic farmers in Africa as well, he immediately hands over care of the farm to the faithful Globine and travels to Kenya. Here, he meets Barke, an innovative organic farmer. She shows him that African farmers are also using organic farming methods to defy the rigours of nature. When he returns home, Globi – as a "smart farmer" – introduces these organic methods on the farm.
When the farmer returns, he is delighted with his organic farm and its happy animals. When his daughter agrees to take on the farm, the happy ending becomes even happier. "Globi, the smart farmer" is an entertaining adventure story. It is also an education for both young and old!
