Macalaco’s garden is off the mark
At the risk of boring you all, here are photos of more plants! These photos make me really happy because they show just what the villagers are able to do if they’re given the opportunity. Macalaco School has now joined Ostico and Maucale Schools in planting their school gardens with the $500 funding we gave them. Rather than provide the seeds and equipment, we allowed the villagers to decide how and what to spend the money on. Maclaco has planted corn, peanut, sweet potato and banana. It’s not much money, but to see fresh vegetables being grown, where previously there were none is a fantastic result. Spend it Well will keep funding these gardens if they are successful.
