Greetings in 2009 - and thanks for latest donations

Dear Friends, With the economic downturn and increasing unemployment in South Africa, growing your own food is becoming more popular!!

Take a peek at

and read all about Abalimi in the international news!!

We are ever more busy, training people like mad, at all levels - Survival level, Subsistence Level, Livelihood Level and even at Commercial Level!!

Your help continues to be VITAL , so thank you one and all for "pulling in"!

The latest amounts (Nov and Dec 08) that came through from quite a number of good people, including our dear friend Grace (who visited Abalimi in 2008) amounted to over R10 500.00 !!!

Thank you for staying with us on the "long road to health and prosperity through organic micro-farming among the poor!!"

Please read our latest Harvest of Hope newsletter attached , which is written to clients of Harvest of Hope, to give you a feel for how our marketing end is going!

Remember- the training you have sponsored makes it all happen!!

All good blessings for 2009- may your own gardens flourish!!

Yours in true development Rob Small for ABALIMI
