Pictures from Namanga

I got an email from Pastor Simon in Namanga, Kenya last week updating me on their garden’s progress.  They have planted kale, beets, onions, bell peppers, and the okra is still going strong!  I have been busy planting at the farm and haven’t had much time to work on the logistics of getting the rest of our drip kits on site.  But I’ve made a little progress in the last 2 days and hope to gain some more ground on that next week.

Purdue University has developed an improved crop storage bag for use in developing countries.  It is a 3 layer hermetically sealed bag.  Any insects in the crop (grain or dried beans) are killed by lack of oxygen when the bag is sealed.  New insects are also kept out by sealing the bag up.  EDEN is going to supply some of these bags to our trainees from this spring.  This will help them protect their crop and have more to eat for a longer time after harvest.

We are excited about getting the drip kits and these crop storage bags into the hands of our friends in South Sudan, Uganda, and Kenya.  If you would like to make a contribution to help with the purchase or the logisitics of getting these items in place, we would welcome it!  EDEN is now fully registered as a 501(c)3 and your contribution is fully tax deductible.
