Our Garden and our Work Grow Strong

The crops are growing well — the sorghum sprouted out and corn is growing fast in this rainy season. See our pictures of tree collards from one of the community gardens.

We are doing everything possible to change a world in need of change. Our success is shared by everyone in our communities! Let's continue making a contribution to the bio-intensive agriculture movement.

OTEPIC Trains Kenyan Village Farmers

Representatives from farmer's groups gathered for a training. They were given start-up vegetable seeds, and they had the opportunity to exchange seeds. These farmers will train others, thus spreading information about biointensive farming.

Gardening is about enjoying the smell of the plants growing in the soil, about getting dirty without feeling guilty and soaking up a bit of peace and serenity.

Have the best day of your life with rainbows streaming through your heart and your soul expressing itself in all you say and do.

How our Garden Grows . . . in Kenya

I hope you really enjoyed Earth Day! It's raining here, and the farmers are busy in their fields.

Our gardens are growing, and we had a work party to pull weeds. We are growing Irish potatoes that are large and drought resistant, beans, black nightshade, beets and leeks, drought-resistant cassava, and spinach. See our portable garden with onions and black nightshade. Did you know that young pumpkin leaves are edible?

The earth is a generous mother; she will provide in plentiful abundance food for all her children if its soil is cultivated in justice and in peace.
