July 21, 2014 – The brief helps illuminate the power of smallholder farming to address a number of our development goals. It takes on the myth that large mega farms are more “modern” and productive than smallholder farms.
Help share this issue brief: join Landesa and Devex in a “Small Poems for Smallholders” Twitter rally from July 21 through July 25 as part of Devex’s FeedingDev campaign.
Tweet a Haiku about smallholders using the hashtags #SHFHaiku and #Feedingdev and include the following link to Landesa’s new smallholder issue brief to help spread the word about the critical role smallholder farming plays in our poverty alleviation efforts: http://bit.ly/SHF-IB
