The wonders of modern technology let us get updates from the village via text or SMS. A great innovation in a village with no access to postal service. (Slightly edited, as it was translated into English):

November 2012 report:

Fiadanana and Fiarenana: both gardeners getting ready for Zahana’s tree planting campaign in December. In Fiarenana the focus will be especially on fruit trees, in the village of Fiadanana they opted for eucalyptus. A total of some 1,000 babytrees should be planted starting in December.

Fiarenana: the school garden is ready to harvest: cucumbers, leafy greens and corn. They are also busy with the preparations for the Christmas celebration. In Fiadanana recently 64 new baby trees were transplanted.
