Spirit of a family garden in Fiadanana came back

The spirit of a family garden in Fiadanana came back” was the comment of our founder Dr. Ihanta, when she forwarded the photos in this report.

Sometimes you just have to wait a decade until people come around. Really?  Yes, really.

As you can see on our website, in 2013 people planted vegetable gardens next to the houses in Fiadanana, our first village.  We originally thought it is a no brainer to have a garden right next to your kitchen, that supplies you with fresh vegetables as close to your cooking pot as possible. Ihanta had bought little vegetable seed packages and Bary our new gardener distributed them among the people interested. It worked really well and the vegetables grew happily. But then the idea fell asleep and for reasons unclear to us, people stopped growing vegetables next to their houses.

Now the vegetable gardens are back. We are not sure yet if there is a correlation between the huge and beautiful school gardens, thanks to Donné, that blossomed during the pandemic lockdown. Or it could be Donné’s persistent teaching by example by introducing new crops, showing that onions and carrots do indeed grow in their soil, despite the poluar believe to the contrary. Whatever the reason, we are happy that the spirit of a family garden in Fiadanana came back.

And they send us the pictures to delight us.
