Greetings Global Giving Friends!
Did you know that extremes in Cape Town are normal- always have been.
beach sand for soil, 40 degree dry heat in summer, floods in winter, gale force winds in between
the super rich living a few kilometers away from a sea of super poor
And our micro-farmers , who live among the shacks, are not deterred by the extremes- they know how to grow the most splendid abundance of healthy unpoisoned organic vegetables, to feed thousands of the poor, while selling some of these at a good price to those with jobs and money!
Please take a look the links below to view a lovely video made by volunteer Matt Miller , and his good friend Travis Blue- they came all the way from America to do it, as a gift to Abalimi!!
Please also read below a recent article about our leading micro-farmer, Christina Kaba.
And dont forget to keep a Tuesday morning free (9am-12pm) to visit our work first hand, when you visit Cape Town !
Please accept, one and all, our hearty thanks for your donations- every cent counts. Hundreds of micro-farmers among the poor in Cape Town have been, and continue to be, supported with essential services, as a result.
All the very best- Rob Small , family micro-farming activist!
