Urban subsistence farmers bemoan delayed rainfall

By Minenhle Moyo

The rise of urban farming in Zimbabwe over the years has served as one of the ways through which families in Bulawayo, the country’s second-largest city have adjusted to hunger.

Residents who had been farming and reaping twice in the rainy season to realize more output have expressed concern over the delayed rainfall. The increase in rates has worsened the situation for urban farmers who could have opted to water their crops as they wait for the rains.

Most families are now living in panic as they might not reap as much as they did in previous years to sustain their families, in light of the ever-increasing prices for basic commodities.
