Mandela Day: food gardens to combat hunger

first_imgThe African Children’s Feeding Scheme (ACFS) feeds over 31 000 children daily through feeding centres and mobile vans (Images: ACFS Facebook page)Active citizenship initiative Lead SA is partnering with the African Children’s Feeding Scheme, Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo and the Dis-Chem Foundation to facilitate Mandela Day events geared at teaching South Africans how to plant and maintain their own vegetable gardens.“Too many South Africans go to sleep hungry every day with no idea what they will eat the next morning,” Lead SA’s Terry Volkwyn said in a statement on Wednesday. “In the true spirit of active citizenship, we encourage South Africans to heed the call to curb hunger not only by starting their own vegetable gardens on their pavements, but by also donating surplus food to feeding schemes in our communities.”Members of the public will be taught various gardening skills, including planting techniques, container gardening and pest control, at Mandela Day events at venues across Gauteng province, including in Midrand, Eldorado Park, Jabavu, Meadowlands, Orange Farm, Naledi and Zola.The African Children’s Feeding Scheme (ACFS), which feeds over 31 000 children daily through feeding centres and mobile vans, will host a Mandela Day educational activation at four of its centres – in Jabavu, Zola, Meadowlands and Naledi – where stalls will be set up to expose community members to different types of food gardening.A similar event will take place at the Dis-Chem Foundation’s community garden in Midrand, launched earlier this year to help community members in the area.Also on Mandela Day, Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo – under the theme “Harvest4Madiba” – will distribute fruit trees across Johannesburg, showcase small-scale farming in Lakeside, Orange Farm, refurbish parks, distribute food hampers and reclaim illegal dumping sites in Eldorado Park.Lead SA will also create a community vegetable garden at their premises, Primedia Place in Sandton.“We encourage other companies and businesses to assist in fighting hunger by transforming their front verges into vegetable gardens which could feed many more South Africans,” Volkwyn said.She added that members of the public wishing to volunteer to take part in any of these activities should register to do so through www.leadsa.co.za.In support of the campaign, The Star and other Independent Group newspapers will publish features on different types of food gardens, including rooftop gardens, suburban pavement gardens and large-scale community gardens. The Star has also committed to creating a container garden at its building in downtown Johannesburg, with the produce to be donated to organisations in the inner city.In the Western Cape, members of the public will be invited to do their 67 minutes of volunteerism at the Oranjezicht City Farm, where they will learn the basics of planting seedlings.Lead SA will also have a Food Truck which will collect food from different areas in the Western Cape to donate to soup kitchens and other feeding schemes in need.Food insecurity is not just a global concern, but is affecting South Africa tooLITERACY, SHELTER, FOOD SECURITYAt the launch of Nelson Mandela International Day 2014 in April, food security was identified as one of three major themes, the other two being literacy and shelter.“Food insecurity is not just a global concern, but is affecting South Africa too,” the Nelson Mandela Foundation said in a statement shortly after the launch. “According to a research report released by the Human Sciences Research Foundation (HSRC) in August, only 45.6% of the South African population is food secure.”Foundation CEO Sello Hatang commented: “All people, at all times, should have access to sufficient, safe and nutricious foods to maintain a healthy and active life. This is a crucial social support measure for effective development and growth. Feeding activities – whether food parcels, food gardens or feeding schemes that provide long-term access to food security – can transform world hunger.”last_img read more

Dry conditions can lead to nitrates in corn

first_imgShare Facebook Twitter Google + LinkedIn Pinterest By Peter Thomison, Laura Lindsey, Steve Culman, Sam Custer, Ohio State University ExtensionHave very dry soil conditions increased the potential for toxic levels of nitrates in corn harvested for silage? Nitrates absorbed from the soil by plant roots are normally incorporated into plant tissue as amino acids, proteins and other nitrogenous compounds. Thus, the concentration of nitrate in the plant is usually low. The primary site for converting nitrates to these products is in growing green leaves. Under unfavorable growing conditions, especially drought, this conversion process is retarded, causing nitrate to accumulate in the stalks, stems and other conductive tissue. The highest concentration of nitrates is in the lower part of the stalk or stem. For example, the bulk of the nitrate in a drought-stricken corn plant can be found in the bottom third of the stalk. If moisture conditions improve, the conversion process accelerates and within a few days nitrate levels in the plant returns to normal.The highest levels of nitrate accumulate when drought occurs after a period of heavy nitrate uptake by the corn plant. Heavy nitrate uptake begins at the V6 growth stage and continues through the silking stage. Therefore, a drought during or immediately after pollination is often associated with the highest accumulation of nitrates. Extended drought prior to pollination is not necessarily a prelude to high accumulations of nitrate. The resumption of normal plant growth from a heavy rainfall will reduce nitrate accumulation in corn plants, and harvest should be delayed for at least 1 to 2 weeks after the rainfall. Not all drought conditions cause high nitrate levels in plant. If the soil nitrate supply is low in the dry soil surface, plant roots will not absorb nitrates. Some soil moisture is necessary for absorption and accumulation of the nitrates.If growers want to salvage part of their drought damaged corn crop as silage, it’s best to delay harvesting to maximize grain filling, if ears have formed. Even though leaves may be dying, the stalk and ear often have enough extra water for good keep. Kernels will continue to fill and the increases in dry matter will more than compensate for leaf loss unless plants are actually dying or dead. Moreover, if nitrate levels are high or questionable, they will decrease as plant gets older and nitrates are converted to proteins in the ear.If corn has been harvested and is suspected of being high in nitrates, it should be tested. Most labs that do forage testing can analyze samples.The keys steps to collecting forage samples for nitrate testing can be found at https://fyi.extension.wisc.edu/forage/nitrate-poisoning-in-cattle-sheep-and-goats/ which is also in the Mark Sulc article below.For more information, check out the following:Be Alert to Late-Season Potential Forage Toxicities – Mark Sulc.

Vancouver Island partners sign hull design contract for floating LNG project

first_imgVANCOUVER – The developer of a floating liquefied natural gas export facility proposed for Vancouver Island says it has a deal with a Korean shipbuilder for the design of two large at-shore hulls.Steelhead LNG and partner Huu-ay-aht First Nations say the agreement was signed at the Gastech Conference in Barcelona with Hyundai Heavy Industries to engineer and design the equipment for the Kwispaa LNG Project.The LNG export project, which features floating production and storage units, is proposed to be built at Sarita Bay off land owned by the Huu-ay-aht First Nations, with a final investment decision scheduled for 2020 and the first 12-million-tonnes-per-year phase to be operational in 2024.Three companies have been invited to bid to engineer and construct the project’s topsides, marine facilities, pre-treatment and onshore plant facilities.The design work under both contracts is expected to start next year.The hulls are expected to cost about US$500 million to build. Each is to be 340 metres long and 60 metres wide and feature five individual tanks that provide 280,000 cubic metres of LNG storage.last_img read more
