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.

  1. I am working with an Orphanage in the Trans Mara District of Kenya. We are working on getting an edible garden started there and could use all the help we can get. If you can help in any way it would be greatly appreciated. even if it is just suggestions on what to grow etc.

    love what you are doing!
