Chilling at the Beach? … Oh no ;)

How time flies…almost one week ago Bruni arrived at Zambia and went to Chinkonono Village. The first 2 days, as you know, Lloyd stayed in Kalomo to deal with some paperwork and organize building materials and cement.

But don’t think Bruni was just sitting down and enjoying the sun. Well…she might have done that once in a while, having a coffee πŸ˜‰ But she also went around and met lots of new people and old friends.

So lots of stories were exchanged and lots of places visited. Of course our PAF crew and Bruni took care of our little breadfruit seedlings and made sure they were all put into planting bags and being watered. So no worries…they are all fine and getting used to their new home! πŸ™‚

Also Bruni visited the construction site of our new building. She had a proper look at what we achieved so far and talked to the guys in charge about the next steps and how to best get the flooring and plastering done when Lloyd comes back with the materials.

 

Obviously everyone is eager to learn from new things from Bruni and she willingly shares all she knows with our PAF crew. But it is a give and take, like everywhere in life. So she is learning a lot of new things too.

We can’t wait to hear more about what is happening down there in Zambia. What about you? πŸ˜‰

Unearthed Surprise

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. πŸ™‚

The new nursery shelter and greenhouse is up!

Very good news!! After days of hard work we finally have our shelter thanks to our German volunteers and donors. It is so amazing, so unbelievable.

Before we could start to set up the shelter we needed to clear the area of bush and roots to make room for it. Hard work. Thanks so much to our volunteers!

After getting all the material the volunteers were curious about the shade netting and inspected it carefully πŸ™‚

And here we go: the new greenhouse and nursery shelter only needs a few more little adjustments and then our seedlings can move in.
