INTRODUCING COVER CROPS to the Farmers of Busukuma

Status: Just started
Time needed: 
Two weeks or more
Step: 
1

Prior to receiving agricultural CD's from Ken, farmers in Busukuma were cutting grass to cover the soil so that the soil did not lose moisture which created compost as it decomposed. The farmers ended up getting good yields from their crops as you will see in the photo. Ken has instructed us that by introducing cover crops we will improve the organic nature of the soil. This involves less work than the previous method and has resulted in double the yield from crops where this method has been implemented.

Create a customer satisfaction survey

The tourism program would like to develop a standardized satisfaction survey that could be used to gauge customer satisfaction for the tourism packages offered. This will help make it easier to tell what things need to be improved on. This will also help us prioritize and justify specific target areas where funding may need to be directed for improvements to infrastructure.

Can you help us develop a survey that can be given to our visitors to help gather appropriate feedback?
