GETTING IT TOGETHER




The road to Kentani

The fact is, I am not writing much at the moment simply because I am busy with this new project and it is turning out to be quite a mission getting everything together. Mulch for one thing, a Gardening Service Business in town cut the grass on the pavement and parks for the Municipality. Eva, the lady from the gardening services told me that there is also something going on at the local School, apparently and Overseas NGO setting up a garden there, will have to go and check it out. 


Anyway, Eva was telling me that they use to burn the grass as garden refuse and suddenly people are fighting over it, there is also a Nursery nearby that want a lot. She will give me some from next weeks cuttings. I also having problems finding old newspaper, apparently they all go back for recycling now. All these are really very positive signs, it means people are starting to re-use stuff and in a good way.

The problem is that I am finding it very difficult just to get things of the ground and I am  not getting any help, as promised.

I also went with Tim to Kentani in the Transkei. He is busy with a food Forest there, on some tribal land.
