Open Daily 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. Thursday and Friday 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Telephone 328-8171 By CLIVE LAWRANCE Christian Science Monitor BOTHA'S HILL, South Atnca The Valley of a Thousand Hills is one of the loveliest sights in South Atnca The old road between the cities of Durban and Pieterrnanzburg runs along its borders, and passing tourists stop frequently to gaze at the hills that roll for miles into a pale blue haze. But a closer look reveals a less beautiful picture. The valley has some of the poorest soil in the country Droughts occur almost every year when nothing will grow. Even in the wet summer months the soil, a decomposed gneissic granite, is too im- poverished to support Us volume of people, and malnutrition is rife among the 45.000 Zulus who live there. In terms of ecology and human hie. this beautiful valley was heading downhill last until, in 1951, Dr Halley Stott began a scheme that is slowly turning the tide. EROSION HALTED Now, even in winter, one can see green strips of land vegetable gardens among the sun-bleached hills. Soil erosion is being halted And there are small glittering ponds stocked with fish. No figures are available, but doc- tors in the nearby hospital claim malnutrition is on the decline How is it being done? Largely through the work of the Valley Trust founded by Dr. Stott as a welfare organization entirely depende- nt on public support. The basic aim of the trust is to improve the nutrition of the Valley of a Thousand Hills. This is done in lour ways demonstration food pieparation unit. corn grinding mill. food producti- on by means of vegetable gar- dens. culture. COOKING METHODS Dr. Stott early discovered valley cooking methods large- ly destroyed the nutritional value of the lood Valley eati- ng patterns didn't help Cither for many years the people had grown corn and then trad- ed the grain for refined meal and other less nutritive luxury foodstuffs Now Zulu people who come to the local hospital for treatment of malnutrition are persuaded to attend the food- preparation unit before retur- ning home The unit is run by Zulus, and only simple, available utensils are used in the instruction. Also, the Valley Trust set up the mill and persuaded the inhabitants to bring their grain there for grinding, thus preserving its nutritive value. Perhaps the most remarkable aspect of the Valley Trust is its system of growing vegetables. The valley people- were traditionally pastoralists, but with the coming of the white man their lives underwent a gradual change Their traditional wholesome did ol whole grain corn, millet, legumes, amaasi. roots, tubers, and spinaches gave way to more easily ob- tainable rehned foods high in carbohydrates and deficient in protein and other nutrients The land mainly steep rocky slopes was never suitable for large-scale agriculture, but what produc- tive potential it had was ruin- ed by soil erosion, bad cultivation practices, and the demands of a growing pop- ulation. Rain (about 33 inches an- nually) falls only in the summer and sometimes in torrential thunderstorms that wash away the soil and crops. The problem was solved around 1956 by Zulu agriculturist Robert Maz- ibuko He succeeded in growi- ng vegetables not only in the summer but in the winter, when the rest of the Valley shriveled. The people of the valley saw that he didn't even use irrigation, wondered, and some came to inquire. Today there are some 600 gardens scattered throughout the reserve Not all are as good as the Valley Trust demonstration gardens, but they are growing foodstuffs during the dry winter when once nothing grew The Valley Trust has shown that a tamily can produce all the vegetables it needs simply by putting organic matter back into the chemical fertilizers, which they can neither afford nor un- derstand. No tractors, plows, or bulldozers are required. Some gardens have been es- tablished on 45 degree rocky hillsides. DIG PITS To cut down on soil erosion, the Valley Trust is showing the people how to dig pits alo- ng waterways Offcut vegetables such as banana leaves are flung into the pits A diet of dust, beef and beans sure gave a man a leathery thirst. And the best way to quench it way-back-then was Lethbridge Old Style Pilsner. It still is. For nearly half a century we've brewed it slow and easy for honest, old-time flavour. It was his style then, it's your style now. Round up a couple tonight! TRADITION YOU CAN TASTE FROM THE HOUSE OF LETHBRIDGE ;
