Great Harvest Is In. Time for Chickens

By Evelind Schecter | Program Manager

Many different beans to harvest
Many different beans to harvest

The rainy season ended in October and the children and staff reaped a diverse harvest with multiple types of beans, eggplants, squash, tomatoes, cucumber, peppers, and lots of greens.  Eggplants, for example, come in green, white, and purples, as little round balls, long and thin or conventional, large.  Hot peppers are a mainstay, but a few sweet peppers make their way into the mix. Extra lemongrass can be sold to a local restaurant that likes our organic produce. The lime trees are steady producers now and save us buying them, which is good because they are used in many dishes.

Plans are in place to replace the farm animals. We delayed replacing the laying chickens when our supplier's flocks became ill. The pigpens needed repairs. Now, the chicken coop has been cleaned out, the netting repaired and 30 healthy new hens arrived.  The pig pens have been stripped of decaying wood and are being repaired for new arrivals.

With the dry season, weekly planning sessions confirm agreements on the new plots to be prepared and the seeds to be purchased for seedlings.  The staff and children are out repairing fencing, re-laying irrigation hoses, and setting the seeds to sprout.

With the success of the recent harvest, the plans are to increase the number of beds and target a few crops for sale.

Farming is a never-ending set of tasks to prepare and maintain the fields, but the yield is nutritious, nourishing, and delicious!

Your ongoing commitment to the farm is increasing the yields, ensuring that the children are well fed.  With full stomachs, they are studying well and dreaming of full lives ahead. Thank you!
