Sending Love to Kieran FitzGerald

June 20th, 2016

We want to send big love to our dear friend, Kieran who kindly MCed our TT fundraising dinner twice. He has had what proved to be a very nasty fall while on a great adventure - as ever - having sailed from Ireland as the final leg of O’Sullivan Beare’s March to complete the Camino Pilgrimage. We send him our very best wishes and look forward to having back with us again. Here he is on happier days on top of Croagh Patrick, full of joy and divilment as ever. #getwellsoon

Worms are big news

June 20th, 2016

Worms aren’t often big news. But these are for us. This is our first wormery at Ndi Moyo Palliative Care Trust. A bed of big fat worms have, well, bedded themselves in and they are ferociously good compost makers helping also to breakdown kitchen waste quickly and efficiently. (BTW apparently, a group of worms can also be called a clew, a bunch or clat.) So here’s to our big red composting wrigglers and the goodness they can bring.

Beekeeping Trial

June 14th, 2016

Our great friend and agri-expert, Tony Finch is always extolling the virtues of beekeeping as part of a food sustenance mix in Malawi. We have looked at it before as a possibility, but it didn’t happen. Now we’re delighted to support Aubrey, WAG ranger & key TT supporter at a beekeeping course here at Kusamala Institute of Agriculture and Ecology with a view to trialing a beekeeping project.

A little really does go a long way

June 1st, 2016

Something as simple as a watering can or a little extra know-how about preparing the soil can make a world of difference. A little goes a long way. So big thanks to all our sponsors and donors for kindly supporting this work.
