Some Sweet Surprises

…as the year grows older and we grow older our plants just grow bigger and start to carry fruits. Just a few days ago we checked on our organic and homegrown strawberries in the Kalomo garden. Wow…look at them. Delicious, huh? πŸ˜‰

Don't they look delicious? :)

Also we keep on donating boxes of seedlings to households in need. For example this farmer recieved some Mango, Moringa and PawPaw trees for his orchard. We hope they will soon help feed his family and change his diet to a more nutritious one.

And a very nice surprised reached us just recently. Our friend Patrick Thompson and his family from Hawaii sent us a big pack full of nice things: Veggie seeds, pencils and preserved/dried fruits.

The pencils are going to our community pre-school across the river. Few kids come to school each day without pencils and books because they just can not afford them. They will be so happy πŸ™‚

Some of the seeds we will plant in our communal veggie garden at the base. Some seeds we will preserve for winter gardens, more precisely family winter gardens.

The preserved and dried fruits will be used to teach fruit preservation to our community. So those are a good and timely gift as wild fruits are ripening right now. People are gathering and consuming everything when in season and starve from june to february. Just imagine a family of 6 with 4 Mango trees eating all the mangoes in 2 months πŸ˜‰ So that way we can make sure they will put some aside and keep them for dry season. Great. πŸ™‚

Last but not least we would like to show you some faces behind the scenes at PAF. You all met Grime during the agriculture shows. But have you met his son Chipego yet? He is one of our helpers and volunteers and does a great job. Thank you!
