Good news!

Dear Friends

greetings from the 'bottom' of Africa , once again!

We got some very lovely coverage in the USA by Rosie Spinks in the Daily Good recently. See Link 1 below

Another bit of good news is that Todd and Marysia, filmmakers, also from America, are working hard to complete a new movie on our work, and they are looking for a bit if help to do so - all done for the love of our Family Microfarmers and Abalimi. They are extraordinary Friends indeed. Please check them out on Link 2

And of course there has been an ongoing stream of wonderful encouragement via your donations, which is like good rain on fertile soil!!  Thank you so much, one and all !

This year we will be documenting our model in great detail so that we can give it away as a "free social franchise" to any farmer group or support organization who are serious about small farmer development for food security and want to create real community based micro-farming jobs. Watch this space.

I hope that 2012 is going well for you and that you will come visit our micro-farming movement in Cape Town sometime, if you have not done so already. 

More reports in due course. Thank you so much to the GlobalGiving Team who work so incredibly hard to make this space available to us all. I even got a reminder to post a report, for which I am very grateful.

All the very best to you all, wherever you are.
