Schools Growing Project 2

Last season's Schools Food Growing Competition in Malawi proved to be a great success with pupils and teachers. The kids got lessons in horticulture, from planting through to harvesting, weighing and creating a sustainable surplus. Plus, vitally, they grew their own food - it's hard to learn when you're starving. We had 5 schools last time; this time we're planning to extend it to 10.
Anne-Louise is in Malawi again now in September overseeing the new project - and buying the key inputs for the pupils. Her haul includes: 4000 copy books, 200 kgs of ground nuts, 40 packets of vegetables, 10 watering cans, 10 bottles of pesticides, 3150 pens, 2,500 chalk sticks and 100 hard books.
