27768988263The summer season has come to an end. Even though it was a tough season with the drought, especially for the spinach crops, the harvests of beetroot, tomatoes and peppers were still bountiful! The last crops of peppers and chillies were sold to local restaurants as the beneficiaries started to prepare the soil for the new season.

8 000 spinach seedlings and 5000 beetroot seedlings were ordered by these beneficiaries for the winter season. The beneficiaries have paid for the seedlings themselves by saving some of their income from selling their vegetables, during the year. Most of these seedlings have been distributed among themselves by the end of March 2016. We trust that they will reap much during the coming winter season!
