Short Report 2020-02-29

Written by Marc L. Veary on Saturday February 29, 2020

Wow, we're just about out of February; where does the time go? We've still got quite a lot of rains which has brought our tomato crop to an early end.  The school has large gardens and we aim at being self-sufficent in vegitables. With forty-nine mouths to feed, you can imagine the amount of vegitables and tomatoes we need.  We also have our own small herd of cattle, which supply meat for the kitchen, manure for the garden - with the added bonus of keeping all our grass trimmed. Having our own cattle is significantly cheaper than purchasing meat from the market.  We also have a small herd of pigs. Christine keeps Hyline egg laying chickens to provide eggs for the school's kitchen.

Some of the garden staff where sent on compost training and now we are producing our own compose to help maintain our gardens' soil.

Two of our bee hives are occupied, and should produce some honey later this year.

Finally, we really give thanks to our Heavenly Father for all of you and your financial support of this work.
