The gardens are growing
On my visits to the schools I always wish that we could get some fresh vegetables to the kids – for much of the year their diet consists only of rice and casava (a root vegetable). At the end of last year, $500 was given to each of Maucale, Macalaco, Festau and Ostico schools to start a community garden, from which to feed the school children. The idea is that if they are successful we’ll provide the funds to expand the gardens. Maucale and Ostico’s gardens are already planted and looking great – hoping the other schools to start shortly.
