My World In a Garden, Bergnek is built!

We have just returned from our trip to Bergnek, Limpopo in South Africa to build the first of a series of My World In a Garden vertical vegetable gardens. 

Thanks to each of you and your contributions, donations and support! This was a really fast turn around with only 9 days on the ground to get it all done. The GREAT news is, WE DID IT! We are attaching some pictures for you all to see and will also have a slide show available for you shortly.

Through huge rainstorms, a hailstorm with hail the size of silver dollars and power out for nearly three days, the community and our team worked tirelessly to get the garden done. The last 48 hours where sleepless and it was SO worth it.

Next Steps

On November 15th we are in Vancouver to complete a final interview for a grant to build the sister wall in Vancouver in March 2013.

The funding we potentially will get will certainly help and we still need your support. Please pass the word around, get friends involved, and get involved directly if you choose to, as a volunteer and experience it for yourself.

Please forward this message and join our mailing list to stay updated.
