After bringing together a small UK team including agricultural expert Nick Rew as head of project management, the David James Foundation established a farming centre in Blantyre, South Malawi. This centre is where we hold a majority of our trial tests to investigate the best farming practices. This includes improving irrigation, new crops, selective breeding and better use of seeds and fertilisers. The centre is based at the site of the Samaritans Trust in Blantyre so that our work can benefit this charity too.
Since 2005, the David James Foundation has expanded. We now have a full time team based in the UK, headed up by David, Nick and UK trustee Steve Astbury. From the beginning, DJF media production has been handled by Karl Lear at Pangaea TV with Simon Hammett and Becky Tyers joining the growing team in recent years
