Come Along! We’d Love To Teach You.
Every year, there is a season, known as the hunger season in our village. Simply put, it is the season when the clouds dry up, and the earth doesn’t produce enough food for us to eat. During the rainy season, many foods grow – abundantly, but by the end of May or June, our lips get dry, and we get hungry. It is more difficult to find a good balance of vegetables.
We have recently started a new project in our village: to grow new foods that might be able to tolerate this season. These foods are planted in the bumper season, and will help us to stay nourished until the rains come again. The eyes of the little children light up at the colors of bright fruits, so we decided to plant – a rainbow. Not only are the new foods beautiful, but they might also help to cover some of the nutritional deficiencies that are present in the usual village diet. A variety of colors promises a variety of vitamins and minerals which many little bellies are missing.
Your donations always help us make it through the summer season, as we struggle to grow enough of a bumper crop, and for enough water to keep even the plants nourished.
Subscribe and give us your mailing address, and we may send you some seeds, so that you can garden along with us. The bumper season in our village is similar to a summer in the mid-western locations of the United States, and we alter our soil to match the conditions which are met more naturally in your environment to produce these foods. We have experimented with all of the vegetables we are teaching you about in this message. It’s a lot of work! Even for so many people. Not only have we planted, and prepared our garden – but we have also made picture guides and videos to guide others to learn how to do so as well. Small seeds have a lot of power. So do little people.
If you try this out, please take pictures and share them with us. Also, it helps if you can share our posts or instructions on your social media – to teach others about the work we are doing together. If you like the work we are doing – or if you have suggestions about how we might make it better – please leave us a compliment or suggestion below – it means a lot to be encouraged in our efforts. Thank you.
