Greetings once again dear Global Giving Friends!
This is just an quick check in to make sure you dont think I / we have dissappeared.
Also to thank you One and All for remaining interested and supportive and for your amazing donations ,given so freely and with such trust, from your hard earned cash.
Progress in brief (see Journey of a Beetroot newsletter link for detail): the Abalimi Movement is now over 5000 strong and growing by 1000per annum. Our Harvest of Hope CSA is now selling an average of 450 veg boxes to members every week while creating reliable monthly cash incomes for around 200 family micro-farmers
This kind of Gifting is the actual driver of the real human economy. Everything that is truly original, creative, culturally new, starts - * without exception * - with a Gift. This fact has largely been forgotten by our mainstream economists, but thank Goodness there are those who still have a feeling for this fact. Or else ,truly, our world culture would have no hope and no future.
Please remember: I will never initiate contact with You directly unless you first contact me. I do not wish to chase you or in any way pursue you. But I am very pleased when you do contact me with questions or comments, and I will respond.
If you have not done so, please read the Story of a Beetroot in our latest newsletter. Its still very much current. Link provided again below for your ease of access.
I will post more articles and news when it becomes available. Watch this space:)
All the very best to you all, for 2015 and beyond.
