Driveway Moment: Enhancing Personal Experience


There was an NPR feature during All Things Considered last month about Sweet Potatoes and how they are being used to feed villages in Africa. This was especially interesting to me because I had recently returned from Ethiopia where I witnessed villagers in Kerswa Ellala digging pits for their "food storage"— harvested rubber banana plants that can be eaten years after they are buried. Sweet potatoes was a crop I had never thought would work in Africa, but as I sat in my car outside my house listening, I was informed that yes, they do.
