Farmers and staff gather for a picture at the festival.

Seneca Falls and Clifton Springs Rotary Clubs continued their support by sponsoring the first ever MCV Farm Festival this summer – an idea of MCV graduate Dyson Magombo. Over 200 farmers attended to learn about irrigation techniques and test out new treadle pumps. There are now 19 productive irrigation sites in the MCV catchment area.

New foot powered Treadle Pumps were demonstrated at the festival
