We have had a great experience this morning as six of us started a new group gardening project. An area of about 3 square metres is available in the backyard of a member’s home. One of our members from the Congo brought along 3 family members and they lined up with the hoes and mattock and dug over the area in half an hour – a real African experience. Another member has prepared pumpkin, zucchini and cucumber seeds. And we will plant some of the green leaf familiar to the Congolese that we regard as weeds. Now that is food security.
By the way, do you eat beetroot leaves, cauliflower leaves, broccoli leaves and radish leaves? They are all good greens. Contact Beth firstname.lastname@example.org for more information.
