Passing it on...

As we´ve mentioned the idea was for our property to be a demonstration area.  The dream was for someone, someday to take an interest and want to better their life with a similar idea such as a vegetable garden or water system.  Well this week it started.  People are starting to see our great success after they had all sorts of doubts. 
The local 1st-6th grade local teacher admitted his failures with the school garden and wanted to know what we had done differently.  So, off to work went Kaleb teaching about erosion control.  The teacher has tried 3 or 4 times since March to plant vegetables for the school children and has failed every time.  So, we are hoping now that Kaleb is involved they will have some success and get greens into these kid's diet!

Pastor Fredy has taken an interest as well now that he is starting to share in some of our harvest.  So we're sharing seeds with him for him to have another demonstration garden in his village.

I addition, Kaleb has shared seeds with one other man in our community that has been the most interested, Antonio. He and his family are now eating fresh radishes, with cucumbers on the way. As insignificant as all this may seem, it's the beginning of healthy diets for at least a few local people. This makes a big difference in the lives of these families and their kids.
