11: The Desert Witch | Dutch & English
The desert witch is the thirst quenching and life-saving plant, the Welwitschia! Many animals nibble on the leaves to get at the minerals and vitamins. In this fable, we look at the desert eco-systems, the symbiosis of life in the desert and how the five kingdoms of nature complement each other and adapt to available resources in harsh conditions.
This Fable was inspired by Keto Mshigeni, a brilliant scholar and researcher. Among his many achievements he has developed an algae farming project, supporting poor villages with the 17 million dollars in export revenues that this innovation generates.
