With "COP17" coming up in Durban soon , we are getting quite a few queries about what our impact is on Climate Change. I attach a recent very short write up about this - I hope you will be impressed!!
Another topical 'worry-point' is "where are the young people in agriculture?" This is a worldwide question, to which I like to give a tongue in cheek answer- "dont worry, there are always more people getting older and wiser, and they will carry on the work!! " In addition, we are now noticing a turn around- according to our network news there are now many young people who are coming 'on board the organic-bio-dynamic agriculture ark' worldwide, and this is true also for our micro-farmers in Cape Town. Please look out in October for our next newsletter # 38 which will feature some up and coming young farmers.
Lastly and not leastly - thank you again and again, to all, for being such good "Friends of Abalimi" and putting your money on the line for our seminal work - kindling a new movement for family micro-farming among the poor which has the capacity to 'save the world'. Really.
All the very best to one and all.
