Desert Fridge

HF has successfully trialled a new concept in The Gambia called Desert Fridge. Based on a simple design of two clay pots, one inside the other, with wet sand in between, the concept has been proven in the Banjul area to keep fruit and vegetables fresh for 18 days. Sample pots were made and tested in Lamin, Faraba Banta and Bafulato, small towns in the Brikama and Yundum area not too far from the capital Banjul. HF Gambia is now working on training local pot-makers and providing guidance to local farmers so that the concept is perpetuated throughout the country.
