Adam Yakuba stands among stalks of maize taller than he is. On a farm down the road the corn barely reaches his waist.The difference comes down to one thing: compost.
Soil health is essential for a good harvest. Adam learned how to make compost thanks to a radio program. Hear what Adam has to say about Might FM's climate resiliency radio program in this week's audio postcard. http://www.farmradio.org/ourblog/2015/11/19/the-big-impact-of-composting/

Last year, Augustino Hoza had to support his wife and three children with the modest income from his sweet pepper crop following a poor bean harvest. “My first challenge was untimely planting,” Augustino explained.

This year he has the support of a radio program all about beans to guide him through seed selection, planting, fertilizing and harvesting. Learn more in this audio postcard. http://www.farmradio.org/ourblog/2015/11/26/audio-postcard-radio-helps-bean-farmers-get-more-from-their-crops/

This is what it looks like when youth discuss depression. With hip hop beats, a radio drama and entertaining radio hosts, a radio show has started a conversation about mental health in classrooms across Malawi and Tanzania. http://www.farmradio.org/ourblog/2015/10/05/audio-postcard-positive-mood-creating-a-safe-space-to-talk-about-mental-health/

We are sharing this story in our documentary "Mental Health on Air: Healthy minds, resilient communities," screening Sunday in Ottawa (http://bit.ly/MentalHealthonAir) and Nov. 1 in Toronto (http://bit.ly/MentalHealthonAirToronto). Join us.
