Since 2007, Makoni Organic Farmers Association (MOFA) a community based organization has been actively promoting sustainable livelihoods, community development and environmental management. There are 450 members of the association who come from the Tandi area of the Makoni district. Through interactions at community level coupled with a number of workshops facilitated by Organic Network Form (ONF) the community of farmers has become more autonomous. The major activities include the implementation of organic farming in dry land and horticulture but also enterprises like apiculture, aquaculture, indigenous chicken breeding and mushroom production. 225 farmers have been organically certified after having reduced or stopped their use of dangerous chemical substances, substituting them with natural remedies prepared from a base of chili peppers, calendola and tephrosia.
