We have made good progress and although we haven't achieved everything we wanted in the time frame we had set for ourselves, we have made great progress and are now ready to get the first wall actually built and installed in the rural community of Bergnek in the Limpopo Province of South Africa.
This October we will be travelling with our friends and partners from Arizona State University to build the first wall and make the SAFESipp PureRolls we have told you about previously. The exciting part about it all is that we will not only be able to transport CLEAN and SAFE water to the My World In A Garden Vertical Food Wall to water and nourish the plants, we are also turning the manufacture of the PureRoll's into a community based business for the Bergnek community.
Why this is so important is that in doing this we are one step ahead when we build the My World In A Garden Vertical Food Wall's in other communities because the PureRoll water systems will already be available and in place.
This is an exciting and important project overall and we are grateful for all you have already done and for your continued support.
