Spring is here and that means it’s time for planting and gardening. Recently in Terre Blanche, we built a model garden using a drip irrigation system. That garden has had its first harvest.

At the beginning of this month, 30 people participated in agriculture training to learn how the drip irrigation system works. The participants are excited about using their new knowledge to grow their own gardens as well as share their knowledge with neighbors and friends.

A drip kit was given to each person who completed the training. It’s their responsibility to provide a five gallon bucket to complete the irrigation system and the seeds for their garden. A key aspect of the training was using drip irrigation to minimize the water needed in the drought stricken area of Haiti where we work.

The potential for gaining food security among the villages where these volunteers live is enormous. Please pray for their success in using the training they received and sharing the possibilities with their neighbors and friends.
