‘My ancestors had never used any herbicides and chemicals.’
Tamazi is an economist by profession, a wood carpenter by tradition, a beekeeper for the extra income and an ecological farmer by heart.
Climate change concerns him directly: “My ancestors never used any herbicides or chemicals, but currently its use becomes necessary, as the climate has changed and the humidity has risen.”
He is annoyed by the negligence of investors, “a small dam is being built and we had hoped that it would at least help to construct a good road to the village, but nothing happened”.
He wishes there was a better market to sell his products: “The nearest market is 75 km on the route in Zugdidi and it’s hard to get there.”
Tamazi is from Khaishi.
