The invasive water hyacinth continues to choke Lake Victoria, Africa's largest freshwater lake. But some farmers are harvesting the "green gold" to make environmentally friendly compost.
On this week's Eco Africa, we check out hydroponic urban farms in Nigeria, art projects in Ghana's classrooms, a disappearing Senegalese village, and solar energy in Egypt's remotest areas.
On this week's eco@africa, we look for the endangered Knysna seahorse, learn how to turn paper into pearls and see what a team of creative entrepreneurs is doing with fish skins that would otherwise sit around and rot.
On this week's eco@africa we find out about protecting birds in Uganda, renting baby clothes, and creating energy in Kenya by harvesting the power of organic waste and dung.
This week, we visit an organic farmer doing battle with crows, find a use for invasive water hyacinth, ask if sharing is sustainable and check out a portable solar alternative to smelly generators.
