Looking Up

Green...Tomato Plants at 21st day after transplant
Green...Tomato Plants at 21st day after transplant

Dear partners, It is an exciting time full of expectation. I just wanted to share a few more pictures from the green house 3 weeks after transplanting. The plants are actually flowering and we are due for a good harvest. Thanks to your support in this journey. We are also in the process of looking at various methods of canning tomatoes. Any one with ideas of simple technologies of doing this would be much appreciated. A local rabbit farmer has also approached us and has rabbits to sell, about 8 does and 2 bucks to start us off. Our plan is to have these going on in the next two months. The hatches are just ready. We have also begun marketing initiatives in earnest and reconnecting with local restaurants in readiness for the harvest season I have attached some pictures just giving a feel of what is happening here. It is indeed an exciting time and indeed things are looking up. We have been adjusting our green house business plan and hopefully we should be sharing it especially with regard to the value addition aspect; chicken production and rabbit production. This will effectively get us on to the next phase of the project. My request is to help support the worker managing the greenhouse. He needs monthly wage of $64. If we could have a few friends partnering with 4 recurrent donations of $ 16, we would continue with the good work. Thank you for your continued support. .
