After waiting for several weeks for the rains to stop and for the fields to dry out enough for the tractor to plow them, we are now back in business.
It only took him an hour to get both fields done, saving us many days of hard work.
And today we were able to plant the long beans… something that is very productive and provides not only for our needs but can also be sold to the community as well.
Seedlings had already been planted in our raised garden awaiting the time they could be transplanted into the big garden.
And the children wasted no time in doing so.
Of course, planting the seedlings is only part of the job, adding fresh cowpost to the soil is also important… but not nearly as pleasant of a job.
We are especially grateful to May Chan and her husband Dinesh Shamdasani for their generous donation to our program, which made this possible… and we are grateful to all who have contributed with your prayers, good wishes, and financial support, which helps keep our community going.
MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU ALL!
