John Wilson is both a teacher and an agricultural reformer. Because the sort of sustainable farming he is introducing requires each farmer to think and plan creatively, he is both protecting Zimbabwe's natural resource base, which is increasingly at risk, and pressing the essence of development: the people's skill and will to think and take charge. Having seen how introducing farmers to this approach to agriculture changed them, he is now also developing it into a course that he hopes will become part of the elementary schools' curriculum.
