After the stress of all those agriculture shows now it has been a bit quiet for a while until summer break in Lloyds school. During this time we were thinking about the next steps and new perspectives.
But als we made big progress in planting our communal veggie garden. We started out with some test trials to find out if and how the veggies react to zambian weather…remember, it is winter time there now.
Now have a look at the results:
Grime also went out there to have a look at the garden and was more than happy about the results and how well all the veggies grow already.
Of course we also started to help local women. For example our Planting A Future memvber Mrs Munsaka recived a few packets of seeds. Dont they look healthy and yummy?
We are now making use of the school break to get ready for planting season. So we planted new fruit tree seedlings to provide further schools soon.
Right now we are all working on plans on how to make Planting A Future a self-sustaining Charity and create jobs. One idea is to plant different types of veggies like cowpeas or carrots or maize and give seeds to people to grow them in our behalf. So you see, we have a lot planned for the future. We are just trying to figure out on how best to do all those things 😉
But for now we urgently need to find a way to drill a borehole so we can improve irrigation and water all our plants.
