Capacity Building: Urban Farming and Gardening

Dec 3, 2007

Grace and Flavia come to visit!

Hello everyone and also to all of you who have contributed to Abalimi because of Grace Wong! Just to let you know that she and Flavia (her friend from her church community) came and visited Abalimi. She says she will report back to you as soon as she gets back to the States. It was really good to meet Grace and show her around a bit. She should have quite a few photos to share with you! She visited a few of the community gardens and also attended our 25 Year Birthday celebration, where over 200 community gardeners and micro-farmers came to enjoy an end-of-year meal with the staff of Abalimi!

Secondly, I am posting a brochure for you to read about an exiting new initiative, which Abalimi is launching called Harvest of Hope. Harvest of Hope is very much a capacity building initiative, as well as a social business, so it fits in perfectly with our current project. Its a pdf file and I hope it shows up on the GlobalGiving website ok. If not, please let me know.

Thirdly, I am posting a couple of articles I wrote, which appeared in a couple of national and international publications. Hope you can access them and hope you find them interesting!

This may be the last you hear from me in 2007, although it is possible that I may get a chance to post another update before Christmas. If not, I wish you all the very best for Christmas and for 2008.
