Rice is very important in Liberia! If you don't eat rice it means you aren't eating.
Garrison Seoh, Liberian rice farmer
Traditionally in Liberia, people farm on dry, hilly 'upland' and rely on seasonal rains to grow their crops. However, in recent years rains have become more erratic, and most upland farmers in Grand Gedeh and River Gee have not been able to harvest enough food to feed themselves. In response, Oxfam started piloting farming in swamps, or low-lying marshland, with fantastic results: 700 farmers have been reached so far helping supply 7,500 people with food.
