We are almost at the end of rainy season this year. Unfortunately we only had poor rains in the past weeks. As you can imagine that is a big problem for Zambia in general and for us and all our seedlings and plants as well. Rivers dry out, fields are dead and crops are dying.
All the more important it is to finally get all the equipment and material to make sure of a working water supply. We will do that very soon. This way we will be able to continue our work during the hot season as well.
Thanks again to all our sponsors, donors and volunteers!
But for now: If you can perform a rain dance that actually works, just come over! Zambia will be grateful for some rains 😉
On my way through the country i came to visit a beautiful orchard. Mr. Smart Lweendo has put all his effort into creating this beautiful orchard.
As you can see in the pictures the orchard is flourishing and all those fruit trees are green and healthy.
Even our project manager Mr. Grme Milandu was very impressed by this orchard.
Once again it was more than obvious that this is exactly what we hope to set the foundation for schools…planting a future with fruit trees to start a proper school feeding.
Sometimes you just have to be lucky. While we were working hard to clear the area for our new greenhouse one of our volunteers unearthed some sweet beet roots. That was a happy discovery because you can use those roots to make syrup and even beverages. It is very healthy and can be used for medicine as well.
Just keep on digging in, Ladies! Maybe there is more too find here in our rich zambian soil. 🙂
On and on it goes. Growing fruit trees and especially taking care for the seedlings is a lot of work. Everyday duties need to be taken care of. It starts with tending to the seedlings, watering them, ensuring there is enough but not too much sun…all those things. Without our volunteers this would be impossible. Those guys help out in every way they can. Thank you guys so much! We are all planting a future for Zambia.
As time passes our breadfruit seedlings grow and grow. But still…if you look at them their roots are still fragile and we pray that they will make it through the cold season. Those little plants are part of Zambia’s future.
Soon enough lots of breadfruit and other fruit trees will be planted throughou Kalomo area. Then we aim to expand it and supply areas further away.
Even the young, Zambia’s next generation, is aware that they and we are planting a future…their future.
