Malawi’s farmers turn to radio for support in challenging times

Last March, while Gwen was in Malawi, she had an opportunity to touch base with some of the people running Farm Radio Trust, in the capital Lilongwe.

This conversation took place in the lead-up to Malawi’s national elections, and the conversation ranged from politics to landgrabbing and environmental concerns.
