Foundations for Farming Autumn 2020 Update

This quarter saw us continue our delivery of the school’s project with the key step of installing a drip irrigation system. Students and teachers we’re excited to see the equipment arrive and with the help of staff and irrigation technicians it was installed on site. Students then got to see how it worked and the instant results visible as little pools of wet soil became visible all along the planting beds.

 

Discussion was held with those who had previously received training to ensure that theory is put into practice around mulching, crop management, tillage and of course irrigation. With the seasonal rains now on their way preparation is underway to ensure that the land is ready so that crop yields can be maximised and vulnerable students can be fed. Materials are now being purchased for the establishment of a layer chicken house. Utilising by-products from the farming activities to supplement the chicken’s diet this will provide a cost effective supply of eggs going forwards. With an open day on the horizon to show prove our methods to the community, things are shaping up nicely.

 

Thanks again to all our donors for your wonderful support – the more you give the more we can do.
