40 degree heat - climate change?

Greetings Global Giving Friends!

Did you know that extremes in Cape Town are normal- always have been. 

beach sand for soil, 40 degree dry heat in summer, floods in winter, gale force winds in between

the super rich living a few kilometers away from a sea of super poor

And our micro-farmers , who live among the shacks, are not deterred by the extremes- they know how to grow the most splendid abundance of healthy unpoisoned organic vegetables, to feed thousands of the poor, while selling some of these at a good price to those with jobs and money!

Please take a look the links below to view a lovely video made by volunteer Matt Miller , and his good friend Travis Blue- they came all the way from America to do it,  as a gift to Abalimi!!  

Please also read below a recent article about our leading micro-farmer, Christina Kaba.

And dont forget to keep a Tuesday morning free (9am-12pm) to visit our work first hand, when you visit Cape Town !

Please accept, one and all, our hearty thanks for your donations- every cent counts. Hundreds of micro-farmers among the poor in Cape Town have been, and continue to be,  supported with essential services, as a result. 

All the very best- Rob Small , family micro-farming activist!
