About the Film

Traditional African Vegetables not only played a vital role in terms of nutrition but these indigenous vegetables played a critical ecological and cultural role. The rise of exotic vegetables saw the decline in the consumption of these highly nutritious foods. Traditional African vegetables have great potential in not only providing nutritious diets but also in climate resilience and food security. Dr. Patrick Maundu’s work on Traditional African Vegetables spans decades. He shares with us about his work on Traditional African Vegetables across the continent and why we should be keen to have more of these vegetables as part of our daily diet.
