Dear donors and project friends,
In this new November project report you will see that our project "Provide Vegetable Gardens for Families in Brazil" is advancing and we are already bringing important progress in our community. As you know, we have difficulties to find families that want and need improvements in their vegetable gardens. We are working with a new home vegetable garden, as you will see in some attached pictures. The partnership with Valença County municipality to implement vegetable gardens in the municipal schools stopped because as I said before, the Mayor was obliged to leave his office for legal reasons, and we did not have elections so far. This part of our project will have to wait a little. We really want to start it again because it can be very useful to improve, ameliorate and enrich the school’s kitchens that provide essential meals to students. In many schools there is plenty of space where to make good vegetable gardens, as you will also see in some photos I joined of a new school where are starting to work with our other GlobalGiving project, “Tree and Education Protect Rainforest in Brazil”. This month we finished the building a new greenhouse for Mr. Antonio dos Santos and he can now start a new small business of producing different kinds of saplings of trees, fruit trees, palm trees, spices, flowers and garden plants. Attached you will see pictures of the new tree nursery. Please see a Photo Album and play the slideshow here: http://picasaweb.google.com/Boblamego/AntonioSTreeNursery?feat=email#. As I always say, I am sure that these small investments that offer a chance, preserve nature and water and that can be reproduced everywhere, may represent the beginning of economical, social and environmental changes in the living of many Third World citizens. Thank you very much for your help and donations that make all this possible. I am very grateful to you. Please feel free to contact me if you have any questions, ideas or suggestions and who knows some day some of you can come visit us?
