Climate change is having a mayor impact on Daisi’s family food access:

 
 

Rains have been very erratic lately and this year wasn’t any better. What this means is that our crop yields keep going down. As you can see in my garden, this year hasn’t been good at all and many of the crops I planted like vegetables and pumpkins have wilted and died.

My three grandchildren and I, depend on this garden for vegetables and other foods to diversify our diet and that hasn’t been the case lately because every time we plant, crops die due to dry spells.

I am afraid because with this type of weather – I don’t know what the future holds. What if someday we have a year without rains? We need rains to grow our food and as you can see in this area we can’t do irrigation because all the rivers run dry before winter.
