We are still facing the problem how to raise enough money to maintain Planting A Future and to buy equipment and make sure we always have enough fruit trees to provide them to vulnerable people. So we always try to come up with new ideas. As it is, we also find out about our passions and talents. Obviously pruning plants seems to be one of them.
Thanks to our friends in Kalomo we learn how to do this, how prune plants into a shape that looks appealing to people’s eyes. We mostly use wild seedlings for that. Those plants will not give food. But they will add aethetic beautie to homes. For now we also give them to vulnerable homes to give them a sense of peace and hope.
But also we think about improving our skills in pruning plants so we can actually sell them to families who can afford it. If possible we also want to grow roses and flowers for a bigger market. So right now we are fighting to raise some money because we intend to purchase a lawn mower and paving bricks to prepare a place to do all that.
