Floating Gardens - A Transformative, Accessible Approach to Agriculture
In the face of climate change, Bangladesh’s floating gardens offer an exciting solution to the challenges faced by millions of farmers.
Floating gardens are nothing new, but they have lots to offer when looking for transformative and accessible approaches to agriculture. These brilliant, environmentally-friendly farms are an important part of our work in Bangladesh, helping create a supply of food and crops in areas where flooding dominates the annual weather cycle.
Faruk Ul Islam, from Practical Action Bangladesh, was recently interviewed on the subject for TRT, the Turkish Public Broadcast service: “Practical Action has been implementing these gardens in both northern and southern Bangladesh – they allow for food in areas where it’d otherwise be scarce.”
